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.
