By now my cherry tomato plant is producing a few tomatoes every day, which Trey and I are really enjoying. Here are some early harvesting photos of one eager little helper. Incidentally, that is thyme in the foreground. Despite a disappointing showing by my peppers (at least thus far) and the larger tomato plant, the herb garden of basil, thyme, oregano, parsley, and chives has been a smashing success. I did enjoy some cilantro early in the summer, but it inexplicably turned into a stump of leafless stalks mid-July. Not sure why, but will definitely have to replant some next year as cilantro is a staple in this Mexican-food-loving household.
For the record, Davis hates tomatoes. He's just hamming it up for the camera.
This little gem was duly washed and properly enjoyed by a real tomato lover, namely moi.
I also planted some zucchini and watermelon really late...like end of June late. No fruit or veggies yet, but the watermelon has spread nearly 12 feet horizontally and several feet vertically up the fence between ours and our neighbor's backyards. Apparently, watermelon has a long growing season before it produces. So we may be eating watermelon in October. Or this may have just been an exercise in leaf growing.
