Fruit of the Vine

Plumpness and fullness swelling in the garden.

Tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and pumpkin flowers galore. It is still swelling; none ready to eat yet, but getting so close. Fullness and family and food.

Oregon Star sauce and canning tomatoes. I started these from seed in February. Seed from Territorial Seed Company, Cottage Grove, Oregon. I have 6 of these big plants planted in the garden. They are over five feet high with baby fist sized dense tomatoes. I also have a handful or more Oregon Star tomato plants in planters. Those plants are flowering but only a foot or so tall. They may each bear a small bit of fruit. Green tomatoes at least for green tomato pickles or salsa.

Pickling Cucumbers. Hoping that these two will be a fresh family snack for us on Monday when we are all together again.
