Yes, we have tomatoes! Three of the tomatoes on the driveway and one in the greenhouse have fruit. The first one to fruit is a new variety for us, Oregon Star. The plant looks a little funky. The leaves are skinny and the plant is a little limp but we think that is the way it is supposed to look. The Oregon Star in greenhouse also has tomatoes. Siletz and Stupice, both early varieties, also have fruit.
And the weather continues to be great. It has been over 25 days without rain. If it doesn't rain before Wednesday, it will be a record! Temperatures have also been around 70 degrees in the day and 50 at night. If this continues, we will have tomatoes before the end of July. Fingers are crossed.
And I'm turning into a rabbit. The lettuce is going gang-busters and we have a salad every day. Can you tell I'm getting a little tired of green salads? Any other ideas of what to do with lettuce?
We also had snap peas last week. The Sugar Sprints produced enough for a vegetable for dinner. They were yummy. And the rest of the veggies are doing great.
