While gardening this afternoon, I found a tomato growing on one of my plants, and the potatoes are pushing through the surface!

After the 1.5 inches of rain we got on Friday night, the garden is looking pretty good.  The pruned peppers are coming back fast.  I see little winter squash on the plants and some green tomatoes.  The snap peas are about done, as they don't like heat.

I noticed a tomato on a plant. I found bean pods on the bean plants. The squash has blooms. I also saw blooms on the eggplant.

My husband has a small garden in our back area of our apartment.  We are growing tomatoes, cuckes, green peppers and squash.  We do a lot with a small space!

CryI am pretty sure that I am going to lose 3 of my Tree Peony.  They were not doing well before the heat but I think this may have sent them over the edge.  I have also planted 3 trees and transplanted 1 tree. The ones I bought and put in seem to be doing well but the one I transplanted I thank my not make it.  It had been planted for the previous owner and when I transplanted it it was not doing well and I found it still wrapped in the wire and burlap that was around the root ball from when it was planted about 4 years ago.
I have been watering the trees, bushes and flowers I put in but not grass. ( the weeds are doing well though!)
Cool off due soon should be in the 70's by this evening so says the weatherman. Maybe we will get some rain.

No vegetable plants this year maybe next year.

I've been getting nice cucumbers and got my first ripe tomatoes yesterday.  This heat has dried up the bean blossoms before they can make beans.  I'll probably get a late crop from them when it finally cools off.  Peppers will be late as the deer pruned them a while back.

Plants have been in the ground 6 weeks & looking good.  Only had 2 days of rain, but they were stormy & the rain barrels got 3/4 full (have 5 barrels) so hubby kept the ground from drying out in all the high 90's & low 100's temps. Mon. & the rest of this week we are in the 80's, & might get rain Sat. (in time for the 92 degrees Sun.)

The brief cooler weather helped the blossoms on the plants to set  more fruit. Remember to dispose of yellowing leafs on your plants. After cool weather and rain the bees/wasps are out.

Friday the 13th =Hubby picked 2 orange tomatoes (he could not wait for them to fully ripen). This is really early for our area (usually get first ripe tomato in Aug.), hope we can keep the plants going till Oct. when we usually get the first frost (I cover the plants to keep them going )
