Early Girl wins


Tomatoes are rolling off the vine. 14 tomatoes off one plant. They are calling out to to be sliced, diced and maybe even swallowed whole. (they are just a wee bigger than the cherry tomatoes)
Maverick planted an Early Girl, Big Boy and cherry tomato. The Early Girl wins despite the small tomatoes. The Big Boy had a disadvantage in the upside down planter. It begs for mercy. One lone tomato, too pitiful to even pick, but a couple blossoms cry out. It truly is trying. But as for the planter, free to a good home. Go ahead the sign in the corner says," Laugh"


After the beans and peas non-productive ways, they were uprooted.
The strawberry plants raised their hands up in their air; more room to sprout!
Sunflowers, zinnias, and cosmos are in bloom. The cosmos seem to be really choking the area, but I give them credit for putting up with the few drops of water they received.
2 green thumbs up for this year's garden, there is already talk of expansion.
We will keep you updated, will there be yellow squash in our future? Lots of green cherry tomatoes ready to ripen.

And thanks again for reading, I hope the farm report doesn't cause anyone to run astray.
It's time to say goodnight, after all tomorrow is a brand new day. Oh the irony; it is 1:37 and I post Early Girl wins.

6:43 a.m.
Eddie is the first one to give my posts feedback, I could tell my tale of vegetables threw him off his gourd. I guess I should have stuck with my post about "flamingos in the pool". There was so much more sprouting from my mind last night, and after only 4 hours of sleep I am sitting her typing again. It's Friday, and Ally was the first to turn on the light and yell, "It's morning" Fortunately, she fell back asleep after this morning's introduction. I think I'll do the same, but I had to add this to the post in case anyone else out there is feeling squashed. Peas forgive my twisted humor.

Agree with Deanna, and I love your garden update. :)

Strangely enough, our tomatoes are way too small too. But you guys have a lot more things surviving and thriving in your garden than we do. Way to go, Maverick!
