We were gone for a weekend and came back to amazing changes in the garden. Tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini are producing their first little green fruits. Thank you rain, thank you heat, thank you height of summer. I had hoped to eat tomatoes before we head to Alaska in early August and it looks like I will get my wish. There are few things as gratifying as growing your own food, and I take special pride in the tomato plants that I started from seed indoors at the beginning of April and that are huge and covered in flowers and green fruit now. It worked! Oh plants, you are amazing!
