First ripe tomato

From Wild Suburbia

I picked my first ripe tomato yesterday. It is Legend tomato, an early producer. I have lots of green tomatoes on other plants, but not on Legend. I am growing Romas, cherry, Brandywine, Big Beef, and Legend. The Blue Lake beans are also flowering and setting fruit. The lettuce is bolting – even though it hasn’t been very hot. We’ve all been cooking a lot so the thyme, parsley, basil, tarragon, and chives are being used.

  8. Hi Barbara,<br /><br />I just wanted to thank you again for the very nice offer to dig up some soil from your beds for my &#39;raised&#39; raised bed. We are reaping the rewards.

  9. Hey Drew,<br /><br />Took a look at your pictures – pretty darn impressive! If you need any more soil or mulch – we&#39;ve got plenty.<br /><br />The Nature Park is looking okay. Jane Tsong offered to help design the central area (aka failed grassland). I will put some info up on the nativebydesign blog. The biggest disappointment was that I found one yellow star thistle there. This is the
