Here is a bit of a vegetable update from this past weekend.

The basil has bounced back and looks great.  Even harvested some leaves.  It's still small but it's growing a little more every weekend.

Some more green tomatoes coming in.

But wait...there's more!

A single red tomato.
Ripe and ready to be harvested.

Now this is the squash plant.  Still some squash growing and plenty of blossoms but some of the leaves are yellowing.  From what we've read, this may be overwatering and I think it might have been the heavy rains we've recently had.  It's still growing but having this issue.  Otherwise it seems healthy.

I forgot to get a picture but the pepper plants have small peppers on them.  Also slow growing this year. Such a weird season.  For everything, ha!


  1. Your veggies are producing nicely.
    Your squash could very well be root rot or maybe vine borers.

    Should you cut off the yellow leaves? The answer is NO; as they act like a sunscreen for the fruit. You will do far less damage by leaving the leaves on. By cutting them off it could lead to a virus or bacteria from setting in.

  2. I love the look of that tomato. One year, I would come out to pick a ripe tomato and discover something had take a huge bite. I watched a groundhog come up, rare up and bite my tomato. I don't think I ever got one tomato.

  3. What a difference in climate, I just planted my tomatoes about a week and a half ago. I love fresh basil, I also dried my own last fall, it was so unbelievably good.
