About this blog

With the generous help of my grandma, I am spending this spring and summer learning how to garden
by plunging in headfirst. This blog is a narrative of my adventures.

Ripe Tomatoes and Fresh Spinach

It's been so long! Forgive me. To be honest, there hasn't been much going on in the garden except that the vegetables have been doing what vegetables should do--growing and ripening. The peppers, tomatoes, and eggplants are loving the hot weather we've been having lately. But if you've stuck with me you're definitely due for an update.

On Saturday I harvested the late lettuce and spinach Grandma planted. It tasted surprisingly good considering how hot it's been and how big it got before I harvested it. I also put a new layer of leaves under the tomatoes, although all the leaves that are left are wet so I'm not sure how much good they'll do. And to my delight there were three ripe yellow pear tomatoes. I wasn't able to wait until I got home and ended up eating them in the car. You can see how nice they looked...before I ate them...below:
And there are all sorts of peppers growing like crazy. I'm very excited, but none of them are ready to pick yet. I'll keep you posted!
