Garden Notes

 Our garden is growing!  My tomato plants are over my head!  This year we actually have eight tomato plants, four early girls, two better boys and two romas. 
 Do you see the baby cucumber?  I am so excited!
These are roma tomatoes which were the first to appear.  I planted the garden (with my helper, Sydney) on April 9th and we saw our first tomato on May 9th.  I am hoping we have ripe tomatoes before July 9th!
 We also have rosemary and basil and in pots by the house we are growing cilantro and thyme. 
I love gardening and only wish I had more space.  It has been so hot here, mid 90's with little rain.  Thankfully it rained twice this past weekend.  I have actually been hauling the kids bath water out to water the garden.  Bill thinks I am crazy but I like to call myself resourceful.  I really wanted a rain barrel this spring but Bill has been so busy with work and other projects that we haven't gotten around to it yet.  Are you gardening this season?
