Thursday in the Garden with Simba
Lots of hot weather and good watering and fertilizer from Dad means that we have giant cherry tomato plants and Mom and Dad have already eaten quite a few cherry tomatoes, although the yield of them compared to the size of the plant is rather mingy. The clusters of little cherry tomatoes are pretty cute, though!
The basil is going great guns too - like Cory, I think I better get onto Mom to make a big batch of pesto (though it gives her indigestion to eat basil in such large quantities). I am explaining to the plant here that it is about to lose a lot of leaves:
Gardening is lots of work, and in this heat, a guy needs to rest and nap a lot.
But in the end, it is time to let them know I need to go inside, where the air conditioning is comfortable, and where I can drop hints for another refill of my food bowl. Happy Gardening All!
