I am pleased with the start of my summer harvest. My Square Foot Gardens and container grown plants are producing the beginning of what I hope is a stellar season of produce. The tomatoes are just beginning to ripen, the spaghetti squash is huge and beginning to develop some color, the cucumbers are producing more than I can eat. The peppers and eggplants are still small, but for my husband and I, a smaller size is usually the perfect dinnertime serving.
I am thrilled with these small tomatoes I grew from seed this year. I am not sure of the variety of the cherry tomato, in truth I think it came from a free packet of mixed tomatoes I received from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds. They are delicious. The biggest, or should I say smallest, and one of the best surprises, have been the super sweet and delectable “currant” tomatoes. I believe they are an heirloom purchased from The Sample Seed Shop. They are very small…check out the dime for scale. I can’t seem to wait to eat them in a salad, they are just so easy to pop into my mouth as I walk by.
