After 4 days of rain I was finally able to go out and do some harvesting. Sadly I still have no red tomatoes. The plants look great with no signs of disease or pests - so that's the good news. The bad news is that we've had so many cloudy and rainy days this summer that the darn green tomatoes just aren't ripening due to lack of sun. Last year by now I had already been harvesting for at least 2 weeks. If I don't get a nice juicy, red freshly picked tomato soon I'm gonna go bonkers!
OK... enough about the tomatoes. At least I got a basket filled with some summer squash, zucchini, and lettuce.
And, another basket filled with bush beans and broccoli. I should get several more weeks of harvesting out of the beans I planted. And more happiness... the liatris in my perennial bed is so abundant I decided to take a few cuttings to enjoy indoors.
Yummy shallots - can't wait to cook these up with the summer squash and fresh dill.
To get myself out of a tomato funk I decided to do a little shopping. There's nothing like a great deal to raise my spirits. Look at this cute little aqua table I picked up for $12.00 at the Christmas Tree Shop. At first I put it outside in the garden.
But then I decided that I loved the color so much I brought it inside to enjoy (probably a wise move considering the current weather pattern we are having).
