Our vegetable garden this year is very different from last year. We had a lot of cherry tomatoes last year from seeds that sprouted up in compost I used. There are not many of them this year as I’ve pulled the sprouts out early before my guilt set in. I just can’t bring myself to demolish a perfectly good plant. I didn’t expect the uneven weather we’ve had that caused a lot of the tomato flowers to drop and the fruits to grow very slowly. Beans, Kale, Broccoli and Swiss Chard are doing well though. I can’t pick them fast enough.
August is here and the temperature dropping close to 50°F for a few nights has not helped either. What happened to summer? I’m debating whether I should sow winter vegetables now or wait until mid-September as usual.

Your garden looks lovely and your Morning glory vine takes me back to my childhood when I helped my parents in a huge vegetable garden. I adored them for the beautiful color but they were not welcome in the garden. Glad you left this one.
The flowers have a truly beautiful color. I thought to let it bloom but pull it out if the flowers looked boring, but they turned out to be exceptionally beautiful. I’m trying to collect all the seeds so it won’t spread next year. Is the rapid spread why they weren’t welcome in your garden?
Yes, it was simply considered a weed.
