We have blossoms... and tomatoes! They're burried deep in the mess but they're in there. It always amazes me how quickly they grow... hell it amazes me that these plants were once teeny lil sprouts in my bedroom... and now they have fruit. So far I've only spotted Silvery Tree Fur tomatoes but all the other plants are loaded with blossoms. The Rutgers plants look especially wonderful, very strong and healthy. They're the tallest of the bunch.
I've also spotted eggplants. They're small. Real small. Smaller than peanuts. Come to think of it, they're about kidney bean sized. But, I'm very happy. For a while there I thought I was going to lose them all together. The new leaves look much better and I'm seeing fewer pin holes. I guess that whole healthy plant thing holds true. I did lose all the whites though (I think, I guess time will tell).
Here's a little insignificant-in-the-grand-scheme- of-the-world success story for ya. See that little, lone clamatis? I've been trying for two years now to get that thing to climb my mailbox. Notice it has CLIMED THE MAILBOX (ignore the broken fence behind it). Sigh.. it's the little things that make me happy (unless we're talking about that fence). Now only if I could really get it going next year... move that one by the front fence being smothered by ivy and they'll be two of them. Imagine the vinage! Ok, I'll stop.
And just a few more shots from in and around the garden over the last week or so... some lilies, lavender and the Gilligan tomato structure. I'm not entirely happy with my recent photos as my computer... the one with all the cool photo editing stuff, is down and I've been using my husband's.
