For the most part, the tomatoes are above are either for fresh seed or evaluation (new varieties to me, quite rare - or the result of recent breeding work by others). I am not going to be fussy with them or baby them, though I did fill the holes I dug with "good stuff" (Miracle Gro potting mix plus Composted cow manure). After that, it is mulch, stake, tie and water...and crossed fingers that the inevitable diseases stay away until I can get some fruit from each.
Today I also mulched two grow bags of potatoes (an experiment) - a few days ago I dug the rest of the Ajo Rojo garlic and planted a double row of bush beans. So, all in all, the garden is 90 plus % planted, and it is all about maintaining, documenting and picking.
We are now harvesting blueberries, garlic, squash, and cucumbers. The potatoes are flowering, as are the first row of beans. Basil is OK to pick. The tomatoes in the driveway are setting fruit, as are the sweet and hot peppers, and eggplant are blossoming. I've replaced a few Dwarf seedlings that didn't look happy, but all in all, a good start to the season, despite too many days in the 90s!
