And finally, the deluge of tomatoes

We had freakishly hot weather here today, setting record high temps for the state. That has to be good for my tomatoes, which are finally pumping out fruit.

A mixed bowl of Black Krim, Amish Paste, unknown red from Kyle, and Orange Banana.

Lillian's Yellow, a Brandywine-sized potato-leaf heirloom. Kyle grew this seedling.

Orange Banana and an Amish Paste

Sungold and Gardener's Delight cherry tomatoes.

We're still getting a few cukes from the Marketmore 78 plant. The Diva cukes gave up the ghost a few weeks ago, but they are so good we'll try them again next year.

Sweet Banana and Johnny's Carmen Peppers. There are more of these to harvest, and loads of lemon peppers, too. Pepper jelly this weekend, I think.

And despite the powdery mildew, we're still getting delicious squash from the Costata Romanesca zucchini, and the Early Yellow Crookneck are prolific and delicious (as always), too.

You tomatoes look great! Here is hoping you have another few eeks or so without a killing frost so you get a chance to really enjoy them.
