Summer drought...

This gardening season has been so hard!  
Record high heat and drought have really made 
gardening a challenge!

In spite of it all,  I did manage to grow some tomatoes.
They are green and will probably stay that way for a while.
You see, they don't ripen if temps are more than 90 degrees.
I am hoping that we get a break from the heat.
I am trying to be patient.

I have three tomato plants that I practically drowned--
I thought they were drooping because they needed water,
so I gave them lots.
The more I watered,  they droopier they got!
Then,  I realized that they were waterlogged!  
I stopped adding water and they have come back a little.
It remains to be seen if they will recover or not.

I have three plants in my backyard that are doing great.
So,  at least I have those!
We'll see!

Here are those plants...
Celebrity,  the best tomato that I have found!

I can't wait for the deliciousness!!!

'Til next time,  
Love ya,  Jean
