Tomatoes and Flowers in the Garden

Our community garden plot has been doing well despite (or maybe because of) the summer heat. The red cabbages are HUGE, and the six tomato plants we put in at the end of May have turned into a hedge. We started harvesting our first cherry tomatoes on the August long weekend, and they’ve been ripening steadily since.


The Gazania Kiss Orange started out with a single flower when we planted it in June and now it is a cluster.


We’ve also harvested kale multiple times, as well as the Thai and Sweet Basil. All have been turned into yummy things. I love having a garden plot.
