I’ve attached pic of one of my raised beds. Tomatoes (Sun Gold, Costoluto, Paul Robeson, Black Cherry), peppers (anaheim, poblano) and eggplant (unnamed japanese variety) all in a 4×6 block. I got behind in planting this year, so they’re a couple weeks smaller than they should be, but we were refinishing the deck so I had a good excuse.
Oh, and also some lilies that just bloomed, in case you want flowers.
Who could not want such gorgeous flowers?
I’ve been making an effort not to overwater my tomato planters this year — greatly assisted by an unusual number of overcast days, and temperatures “only” in the high 80s. So far the fruit set on the full-sized heirlooms seems a little better than usual (which may just be the early warm temps) but it’s too soon to tell whether it’ll help with cracking/crazing, much less improve the taste. On the other hand, none of my cherry varieties have ripened at all, and the suspense is killing me…
What’s going on in your gardens, assuming you and your plants have the strength to deal with the heat?
