I’m thankful I only live about 7 minutes from my office so I get to spend the lunch hour at home if I want. It’s nice to see what the garden is doing in the middle of the day, too. The bees are busy, building out comb and storing honey for the winter.
From talking with others growing tomatoes it seems this year is weird for tomatoes. Perhaps the cool spring and then hot summer immediately after is not going to let us have an abundant harvest. These are the first ripening tomatoes, labeled at Arkansas Traveler but I’m almost 100% sure this isn’t an Arkansas Traveler. I’m guessing we mixed some seeds up or a label somewhere along the line.
The cowpeas are doing excellent, thick and lush! I can’t wait for them to start producing some fruit! These are Big Red Ripper.
That’s my lunchtime garden roundup for today…now I’ve gotta get back to work!
