Re: Vegetables

My vegetable 'garden' consists of one Patio tomato, a pot of basil and a pot of thyme. Because it's in some shade my tomato plant has not yet produced any ripe fruit; however, I did count over a dozen tomatoes in various stages of growth. Last year the one I had produced until the last tomatoes were killed by frost in November. I'm looking forward to eating some of them because I just love that variety.

To all who grow vegetables, greetings.

My vegetable plants are in various stages of shutting down because of the heat. Tomatoes [except the wild ones] have quit blooming because the nights are too warm. Wild ones are still going but will shut down soon. Jalapeno pepper shows signs of stress from the heat. Cucumber, which is growing on a trellis in a 30-gallon pot in the shade, is just beginning to produce [lots]. Eggplant is blooming but does not seem to be setting fruit--probably a night temperature problem.
