Tomatoes! (and a rogue Carrot)
The tomatoes are loving the heat and many are turning red every day. Today I picked seven 4th of July, 1 Red Lighting, and 13 Sweet 100 tomatoes. There are another dozen or so who that I could pick tomorrow and many more green ones that could turn at any time.
I also picked one rogue carrot that I have been noticed growing just outside the garden fence. I must have dropped a "little finger" seed when I was planting in the fall and it sprouted between the rocks in the border around the garden. When I weeded this past weekend I noticed this carrot top and decided to pull it up today. Little Fingers grow to 3" and this is 2-1/2" so it is close to full size.
