In the garden: July 11

Wild Bergamot



Pirkstine orange tomatoes

Costoluto Genovese Tomatoes



Thing are getting big out there! we're eating more and more out of the garden- spinach, peas, strawberries, swiss chard and soon- Zucchini! Things have really bounced back after the grasshopper attack, and the weeds are under control- plus lots of flowers are blooming- which is so heartening. I'm really loving the Gypsophila (or " baby's Breaf" as N says- while holding them out of A's mouth- so cute), they are really a beautiful plant out in the garden- wispy and bright.

The tomatoes are really doing well- our big black krim and saved seeds are such beautiful plants, stocky and sturdy stems, with lots of fruit on them already- we haven't put up tomato cages or any sort of support yet (not on purpose...thing get busy) and I think we'll just let some variteties do their thing this year with no supports. Some varieties are awfully leggy though like pirkstine orange and will need a support, the mini pirkstine tomatoes are so adorable though not as cute as the costoluto genovese tomatoes which are about a the size of a quarter, and just gorgeous. The other tomatoes are not producing much in the way of fruit yet- but they're coming.

I'm linking up with Amanda for this update, if you'd like to leave a link to your garden- please do so in the comments.
