The first non-bird-pecked, non-blossom-end-rotted, red, ripe tomatoes have arrived in our garden!
It has been so dreadfully hot that I certainly have done nothing noteworthy, but oh, how the garden is trying to rally. The heat (and random watering) has about done in the pepper plants, but the cucumbers are holding in there. The mysterious vines are actually holding up the tomato plants and I can no longer distinguish between the watermelon, birdhouse gourds, and the other one whose seed was planted and quickly forgotten. There are even a few sunflowers poking up above the chaos. What a jungle we've created out there. And in containers even.
Who would have thought things could get so crazy in the world of container gardening?
