These were the first of the season.  I know what you’re thinking: “Amanda, it’s July and you’re just now getting ripe tomatoes?”

And my response to you is: “Yes, so.”

According to Dr. Calvin Bey, it hasn’t been a great year for tomatoes, and I would have to agree, because it’s past mid-July and our tomatoes are just now turning ripe.

Sugar baby watermelons.  I have to tell you, it has been a trip for me to see watermelons grow.  it’s a low, sprawling plant, I’ve never seen it before, and no pest is bothering it!  Watermelons to the max next year!  Yeah, that’s what I said….TO THE MAX!
