It's official, I've picked my first tomato. I just couldn't wait any longer!

I'm not sure if the beans will make it into any kind of meal because I love them raw and I didn't plant a whole lot... but we will see...

Buds have appeared on the eggplant(pictured below) and the pepper plant(too small to get a picture of)

Egg plant.

Last weekend I added a sun shade over the plants. It was 95f/35c today and we were swimmin' in the pool!

Arizona sun is just a tad to harsh for these plants. They get straight sun only in the eventing, like pictured above, but the cover does allow enough sun to come though the rest of the day.


  1. Wow! Planting is JUST starting here. Not in my yard yet. I'm not ready. It's still possible to have frost but I think we may be past it just outside of NYC.

  2. We are WAAAAY behind you in Ohio!
