After a week plus of getting ready for my son's 5th birthday and a really bad case of poison ivy (all over my arms, my face, my eyelids, not fun) I am finally back in front of the computer. And since I'm taking steroid pills for the poison ivy, I should be pumped up and ready to blog like mad! :)
One good thing about taking some time off from gardening in the middle of July is that when you finally do get back to the garden, it's like seeing it for the first time. I walked out there today and saw red ripe tomatoes, tons of cucumbers, poblanos, jalapenos, some big zucchini and crook neck squash. Where did they all come from? Well, I know that they came from all the hard work I put in this summer but it's nice to see that it's finally paying off in the form of something that I can eat.
No surprise that my Early Girl Tomatoes are ripe but I was shocked that I had some Brandywine and Brandyboys that were ready also. The Porterhouse Tomatoes and the Tomande will probably be ripe enough to pick this week also.
I guess my garden felt sorry for me and decided to make me feel better with an early treat. Thanks guys!
