I planted the garden a month late so my first pick of tomatoes was yesterday, with this one yellow tomato. It is small but had the real taste of a real tomato.
I thought I had lost this plant during our one heat wave. The whole plant shut down but lots of nurturing has brought it back. It has started blooming all at once the past few days.
We have been having a lot of puffy clouds the past few days. A panoramic camera would be great to have at the time. I had a panoramic, inexpensive camera years ago, back when they still developed film. It took great photos but it was for only a short period of time as film technology changed. I will someday pull those old shots out and share some of them.
I took a lot of shots of the swallowtail recently but it has not been back. I try to be careful with the bug spray, using it only on the leaves. The beetles only land and eat the leaves. They stay off the flowers. That still might keep them away. If I were not spraying, there would not be many leaves left.
It is a sunny day today with cooler temperatures. We will take as many good days as we can have. Thank you for stopping by today.
