Re: The First Zucchini; first tomato

Two, Kitty--although fall and spring sometimes overlap and one planting suffices. I'll have wild tomatoes until August then nothing until, say, October-November.

Yeah. Some "cool" season vegetables don't do very well here at all. Most head lettuce, for example, are more trouble than they're worth. In fact, most head anythings [cabbage, brussels sprouts, radicchio] bolt before they mature. But some that are typically associated with cool--collards, bok choy, romaine--do fine two, sometimes three, times a year.

Neat about the sweet baby girl. When they begin to ripen, let me know and I'll come up and help you dispose of them.

Ok, Jim, up here we generally refer to the growing season as "the season", and we have a single growing season a year. For cool-season veggies or annuals it is possible I think for us to have 2 seasons in a year, spring and fall. So, how many tomato seasons do you have in a year? I hope you don't mean you won't have any more tomatoes until next year. BTW I now have little green tomatoes on my Sweet Babygirl vines!

Interesting, Bonnie, and... amusing. I just harvested my last tomato of the season.
