It is nearly the end of July and I am still waiting on my tomatoes. It's my fault for not getting the plants out a few weeks earlier. Now that I have had it in a spot that gets more sun there are a few that have started blushing. So excited! There will soon be tiny cherry tomatoes. I am still waiting on the Heirlooms to blush, but it will be a bit longer since they are destined to be larger fruit! I will post pictures as they become ripe.
The Basil knows the summer is winding down and it is time to make sure the next generation has a chance. I have been pinching buds daily. Time for pesto! Do you have a favorite recipe? I was thinking about toasted pine nuts rather than walnuts this time.
When I went out this morning I was surprised to find this cutie peeking out of the foliage! I though this Gerbera Daisy was done blooming, what a nice surprise.
I have a couple Jalapeno plants and a few baby peppers. The larger ones are about 1-2 inches long. I am not sure if they will manage to get much larger, but they will still be warm and peppery :)
There are also some "Sweet Red Peppers" I am keeping my fingers crossed that there is enough sun light for the sweet little peppers to turn red.
After putting some cilantro in a pot I still had 2 little plants, so I just randomly put them in a strawberry pot with an extra jalapeno plant. The cilantro just exploded and now looks like a frilly skirt for the pitiful skinny pepper plant. I love how voluminous the cilantro got, it is just so elegant.
Can you see the little jalapeno just above the rim of the pot?
