summer blooms and harvests

Rains are here and so is summer. I have had very good luck with cucumbers this year. Tomatoes and eggplants have flourished too. Here are some flowers in bloom presently.

Oak leaf hydrangea – in bloom for more than 10 days now

I love this flowering plant. It has given me a lot of cheer for more than 10 days now – the flowers don’t seem to wilt at all as long as I keep the plant happy with water twice a day!

Daily harvests

The day-to-day harvests from my small garden varies as above. Tomatoes especially are delicious when consumed immediately after plucking them.

Mini tomatoes – just waiting for them to turn red!

I think I should be able to distribute them to neighbors too in about two weeks from now.

Reproduced mini tomato plants

These are the plants that I reproduced (see last post “how to multiply your tomato plants”) and have presented them to a couple of my friends. I think I have got at least one friend interested in starting up a home garden!
