Photos from my evening stroll through the garden just ahead of thunderstorm #2.
I am so impressed with the early performance of the Blue Beauty tomato plant. The fruit have more than doubled in size and it has half a dozen fruit set. This plant was the second seed to germinate and has been a monster at every stage out pacing all my other seedlings of all varieties. But, the Absinthe and Barlow Jap plants next to it are nearly caught up.
... but not all of the Blue Beauties are showing blue color. This is all on one plant.
After last year's Epic Fail in the squash department I am really enjoying these healthy Dunja zucchini plants. And you can be sure I am checking every day for signs of stink bugs. I have killed a handful of various stink bugs but have only seen one wicked Horned Squash Bug. At least I think that was what it was. It was on the wing just outside the back door.
My melons are growing well. The Cantaloupe in the front are covered in blossoms. The Moon and Stars watermelons in the back are growing well but have yet to bloom.
