The View from Under my Umbrella

I have to say that I really enjoy the new Community Garden much better then the old location. The new site has a real feeling of Community. I spend a lot of time sitting under my umbrella looking down the row of tomatoes.

What a view!

These are some of the happiest tomatoes I have grown! Most of the plants are loaded with green tomatoes!

  3. What's with us staring at our gardens? I could spend the entire day just looking, and the first thing I do in the morning is open the drapes to see how much the garden grew overnight :-D

    I compared photos of my "shed tomatoes" from 2011 to those of today, and it looks like it is definitely going to be a tomato year! The plants are huge this year, in comparison.

  4. Looks wonderful! I do hope it's going to be good tomatoe year too. Mine are very green and heavy but not that many tomatoes formed yet, but then they mostly late varieties.

  9. Our tomatoes (as everything else) is progressing at a snail's pace. It's not just so much rain but lack of warmth and now winds battering everything.

    We compared last year's harvesting to this and had harvested lots of things that still haven't got going at all this year. EWe're hoping for a good September and October to give things time to crop!
