The basil is shot. All three pots have flowered and the leaves have gotten tough. Still tastes fine but the texture is unpleasant in Caprese etc. Time to collect seeds and start afresh, in a shadier location. These pots can serve as bee-bait next to the termaters. Its a bummer because I really wanted to use our basil on our tomatoes (ah well. Its not like we keep a milk buffalo in the back yard for the cheese. I can buy basil too)
The sage is looking fine... it looked so small and overwhelmed in its pot when first planted, now Im wondering if I should get it a larger home.
Tomatoes are reddening :jump for joy:. The Beefsteak plant has only two, both green, both getting huger each day. Two planted Early Girls are abundant and showing color (2 are scarlet.... sooooo close). One volunteer appears to be Early Girl too. Yellow pear tomatoes are few and young. The heirloom (cant remember type) is holding onto a small crop of midsized still green tomatoes. I'm wondering if there is still time to put in more plants, with the way the weather has been.
The orange peppers - the potted plant is carrying large fruit - still dark green. The transplants are flowering madly.
Brusselsprouts - wow! I had no idea how wide those plants get.
The cilantro is also shot. Now waiting for the seeds to ripen. Next crop will get a shadier locale.
Found seeds for the yard-long beans.... where to plant? Such a fun question to ponder.
About a bazillion baby limes formed, but only 3 have remained on the dwarf tree.
Most exciting - we moved the potted guava/feijoa tree this spring and after 3 happy but flowerless years, its blooming madly and I saw one little swelling baby fruit starting to form.
