What I picked today ! AND amazing compost

Good morning! Over 100 already and humid. Ick.

So...I wandered out to my garden this morning and here's what I picked!

...and just in case you don't think composting is worth the effort...these tomatoes were picked from two roma classica plants. One plant is right next to the compost barrel and gets all the run-off from the holes on the bottom, the other plant is about five feet away.

...and speaking of tomatoes, now is the time we get ready to cut our plants back to about 1 foot and then we scramble to keep them alive through August. The ones that survive will set another crop of fruit for harvest in September and October. Cool, eh?

I have a date with a clotheline and some sheets and then an even better date with a swimming pool.

Stay cool!


  1. Wow! That is great you get a another season of tomatoes! You inspired me to make my own trash can composter. I just started it last week with some straw in the bottom and now I'm putting scraps in. Anything else you recommend in there to help it along?

  2. Oh my goodness, I clicked on the link to your blog and all the bright colors startled me for a minute! How beautiful! I love the little eggplants! I've been thinking of you and your gazillion degree heat as I've been complaining about our mere nineties... :0)
