How Does Your Garden Grow 1

Tomato flowers
I am growing 7 different Heirloom tomatoes this year, this one is...
Heritage Persimmon

Broccoli
This little guy is about the size of a dime.

It's been HOT and HUMID for over a week now, with temps of 100F-113F. My garden is growing great! I on the other hand have wilted!

i have "melted" as well!!

i never planted one thing this spring and in some ways i am happy! (because of the heat and lack of rain). we have some great farmers markets here at the jersey shore!!

Terri said...

Nice shots- your garden is doing well. Hope the temps cool off a bit for you soon.

Let me know of the deer leave your broccoli alone! xo

My garden has just stared to take off! I've already had a couple of tomatoes but I think the cool spring is going to make for a smaller crop this year. Love your wee Broccoli!

Hilde said...

Great photos! Your garden is growing beautifully :)

Robyn said...

Karen,
Don't melt away on us! Your garden plants look good.

I noticed that my plants are setting a few tomatoes! I can't wait to eat them.

My peppers bloomed, but I haven't seen any actual peppers yet.

I have been eating home grown spinach for a few weeks.

Laura said...

beautiful garden photos Karen.... one of our tomato plants has two fruits just starting.

Sandy Carlson said...

A good beginning to a delicious thing!

Mystic Dreamer said...

I have never seen broccoli in the garden before. Looks nice.

Arija said...

Lovely tomato flower and those hairy buds are a delight.
That sort of eat is no fun. Put on your birthday suit and wrap yourself in a moist sheet, head and all and see how beautifully you cool down.

Your garden plants look really good. We're growing several types of tomatoes. They seem to like this hot weather.

We're in the midst of a heatwave too, but everything seems to be growing well. The broccoli will be tasty before you know it!

Roger said...

Spot on shots love! How's the powdery mildew problem going?

Leovi said...

Really magical photos! Exquisite colors! I love it!
Congrats!

Carletta said...

Both plants look healthy!
It has been so wet here our garden has taken a beating. Not doing well at all.

Stewart M said...

I love watching my veggies grow!

I have been into Central Australia in one of the hotter month - and that was enough!

You have a wonderful garden. The droplets look awesome.

lorik said...

Most impressive! The shots themselves and the fact that you are growing them. You have captured the texture of the leaves so beautifully - and i love the little droplets of water.

I love the broccoli - and yes, I really DO love broccoli!

I'm growing tomatoes this year, too, plus radicchio, peas, lettuce and beans - and one courgette plant. No broccoli though, because I have such limited space!

those flowers are a promise of future home grown gourmet delights! *VBS*

Me said...
