One of the heirloom tomato plants I started from seed, has a tomato turning red. It’s odd though, it is a Costoluto Genovese, one of the really ribbed varieties, however the ripening tomato is not ribbed. Its plantmates are, but it is not. The cucumbers are taking over the beans and competing for space. I had to pull up some peppers to prevent aphid and whatever else was eating them from spreading to healthy plants. I’ll be looking for peppers tomorrow to replace them. The strawberries are still low yielding, but the blackberries are starting to turn. Every garden, every season, is different from the one before it. But they are always rewarding, fun and educational. Gardening rocks!
