My resident hummingbird. She stops by several times a day. Okay, it's probably not the same one each time, but I enjoy the visits nonetheless. Stupice Tomatoes. All are ripening at the same time. TONS of them.
Mucho Nacho Jalapenos. They don't normally crack like this, but the plant has been ignored for a few weeks.
Queen of Sweden Rose. She waited until now to really start putting on a show.


  1. So, up here in State College we are getting all the rain you are - HOW are your tomatoes not splitting? Yours are beautiful! I'm pretty sure every single one of mine has split. No biggie if you can harvest everyday, but if not it is rot central out there.


  2. I'm not sure how these Stupice tomatoes didn't crack. Thicker skin? I'm definitely planting one of these again next summer.

    I also have Lucky Cross. They've had deep, ugly cracking around the stems, but otherwise they are alright.

    The Sun Golds have been cracking like eggs whenever there are heavy rains. It's a shame too, because my daughter loves these. After the hurricane rains came through, any of the Sun Golds with color exploded. Only right now am I getting ripe, healthy little tomatoes again.
