A few of my summer blooms:
Growing your own plants from seeds is much easier once the weather is warm enough to keep them outside. I planted some more tomatoes, okra and cucumbers and placed them in a sheltered area, where I could water them and monitor their progress. They will be planted in the garden to replace other plants that have either finished producing or died. The Tomatoes are another heirloom variety called, "Box Car Willie". The good thing about having a long growing season is being able to grow plants from April until October.
These tomatoes are ripening on the counter and will be either eaten, canned or frozen.
A bucket of zuccini, peas and eggplants.
Over the weekend I froze 10 pint bags of peas. In the South these are called Field Peas.
Ready for blanching:
Wow, its July 6th already! Hope your summer is going well.
