Tis the season, for tomatoes that is, and cucumbers, and chili peppers, and okra, and cantaloupe and watermelon. I think we have 4 varieties of tomatoes in our garden, and 3 out of 4 are ready to be picked this week. The cherry tomatoes are almost a pain in the patoot as they are so abundant, and very good at hiding. The Roma's and Amish Paste have been plentiful as well, and the German Johnsons are turning pink but not quite there, in abundance anyway. The image is of Bonnie, Slate and Melissa picking cherry tomatoes.
Although the Japanese beetles seem to love the okra leaves, we are still harvesting quite a bit of okra. It was prepared and served on the spot at our ribbon-cutting last week, and very much appreciated. Okra is pretty good at hiding too. Donna and Luther are seen here prying them away from their hiding places.
