I’m just about ready to harvest four lovely tomatoes and cut the sunflowers for my dinner table. I thought I’d better document them first.
and here is the entire garden, as it is today.
The strawberry plant is producing, but the berries are not getting real big. I probably should have picked all the blooms this season, but I wanted to see what it would do. Another issue could be too much hot sun. It’s been unusually hot this summer in WV. Strawberries are cooler weather plants. This is an everbearing plant, so it would produce all season, but next time, I’ll have it in a container that can be moved, or a spot where it shades over mid day.
I also have basil, parsley and oregano in the small container in the front. I haven’t done much cooking lately, I trimmed the herbs over the weekend. Perhaps this week I’ll try some tomato sauce!
