The red cherry tomato plant was the first to put on fruit. This one is the biggest. I'm counting on him to turn red. For years I've been growing tomatoes in pots and never got fruit. I probably forgot to water them or they didn't have big enough pots. So this year, I just want 1 red tomato and I'll be thrilled.
Here's the Super Sweet 100's. The plant is TALL. I read that some people get 300-600 fruit per plant from these. Seriously, I just want 1 from each plant. There's also a Mama Mia plant for sauce. OK, I amend my hopes... I want 1 red tomato from the cherry plants and 1 batch of sauce from the Mama Mia. That would just be awesome!
Look how big the plants are getting! I had to upgrade the tomato cages.
The lemons are growing from the tiny buds...
to actual fruit.
The Baby oranges are growing.
Although lots of the persimmons have fallen off the tree, there are still about 20 hanging on. I hope they make it until harvest.
This explosion of growth lately can be attributed to one thing.
Summer has arrived. Thank goodness for AC.
Even my gorgeous hydrangeas are wilting a little in the heat. Once they get a drink in the morning, they'll be just fine.
