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.
More Oregon Star Tomatoes in the garden.
Pickling Cucumbers. Hoping that these two will be a fresh family snack for us on Monday when we are all together again.
Can you see the zucchini?
Here he is.
Pumpkins vining down the side of the driveway.
And some non – fruit of the vine:
Interplanting: Basil growing under the giant zucchini leaves.
