How does your garden grow?



Now that the hot weather has rolled around, the tomato plants are growing like crazy. Especially my two heirloom Brandywine tomatoes I planted about 20 days earlier than I should have. The red one already has a nice size tomato on it. My Washington Boro plant has several tomatoes and a few are just starting to get the lightest pink blush. I can't wait! I am especially excited to make sauce and salsa.
My husband's favorite pasta topper is pesto and luckily I had just enough basil to make a batch for his Father's Day dinner. There is nothing so good as fresh pesto made with basil from the garden!

Holy Shamoley! Those tomatoes are HUGE! I only planted the cherry tomatoes this year, but after seeing your's growing, I wish I had done the big ones. Nothing like a home grown tomato!

My one tomato plant scortched and, to add insult to injury, the dogs did it in. Love the hydrangea!
