Our garden looks pretty good considering how dang hot it's been the past couple of weeks:
The Early Girl Tomato plant has recovered from the brink of death and is even producing some beautiful tomatoes:
The zucchini plant looks like it might be on its last legs, but it's still producing as well:
The little pepper that is sharing an Earthbox with the zucchini never really got too big, but I got a good-sized pepper out of it today:
The other two pepper plants just don't seem to be growing which is making it difficult for the peppers to get too big. They're nice, but I don't know that I'll be stuffing them.
Can you believe this is just ONE tomato plant?
There are some really big tomatoes on there and several that were ready to be harvested. Unfortunetly we lost about three little toms to rot. I have no idea how it happened, but they were beautifully red and perfect on top and soggy and brown on the bottom. *shrugs*
Still, we ended up with a pretty good haul today:
Inthe rest of the back yard the lavender is gorgeous this year and is buzzing with bees:
And this plant hasn't bloomed for a couple years, but mom threw some old garden dirt around the base of it and now it's just exploded! I've noticed a couple humming birds like to visit it as well:
