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!
