Like I said....Whew!
I was joined throughout the day by a variety of buzzing things - different types of dragonflies, moths, butterflies - and, most unusually, by loose swarms of honeybees, congregating around the drainage holes of some of my driveway pots.
Overall I have to say I am delighted with how things are growing....nearly everything has at least buds, most have open blossoms, and there are developing fruit everywhere - most tomato plants have little (some pretty big!) tomatoes, the hot peppers are forming - even a few small eggplant are peeping through the calyx.
and.....the first ripe tomato! Mexico Midget. As usual....yum!
Tomorrow - watering (of course), maybe a few tomatoes sprayed with some dilute Daconil (to stave off fungal diseases like Early Blight and Septoria), a bit more weeding of the bean rows. That should keep me good and busy - and hot and dirty!
