Is looking good!
Now that we are actually having some heat
we should be able to ripen some of the tomatoes fairly soon.
James is in charge of keeping this patch weed free.
It's not a difficult task as everything is well mulched.
But he does have to crawl around on his knees and look for the sneaky sort.
I spend a lot of time tying up the branches and pruning.
I'm choosy about the pruning. I want the plants
lush and full,
but I also want lots of tomatoes,
so this is a job I keep for myself.
We are getting better and better at succession planting.
The thick greens in the bottom right corner of the picture
is a second planting of Chinese greens.
We are now onto third plantings....

Healthy Tomato Patch
Chippers who just suddenly went blind.
Poor thing is as old as our old dog... but I was never so surprised as I was at how fast his eyes went bad.
You can see the one eye is completely white. The other almost so.
