Another Garden Update...



It is starting to get hotter here in AZ! But, my Roma tomatoes wouldn't know any different! They are thriving! I think I put them in a good place. They are in a raised bed behind our Jacaranda tree, so they get a good amount of shade during the scorching afternoon heat. So far, I've used four tomatoes in our meals and they are delicious! You can see I have plenty more on the way, so I'll be adding them to some delicious recipes! Our favorite thing to make with them is my Shrimp Pasta recipe, since I can also use my basil (which is also doing very well). Sadly, my yellow squash got too hot and dry. I should have covered it... And the heat was too much for my dill. But, I have some lovely basil, thyme, sage, rosemary, cilantro, an occasional bell pepper, and of course tomatoes! :) Yay me! I am so happy I was successful in most of my plants! I am going to try to grow some pumpkins later on! I am already anxious for fall!

Thanks for stopping my my blog. I love SITS:-)

That's great about your tomatoes. We set up a garden this year for the first time and then it hailed the day we got all the plants in the ground:-( Kinda defeated my motivation! Well, maybe next year.

I always thought dill was virtually indestructible! Your tomatoes look great.

The tomatoes look good! We have one plant of Roma tomatoes, and about six other varieties. So far we have blossoms but no fruit; it's still early, here.
