It’s Back

Summer that is.

We’ve had very spring-like temperatures for the last several days, which has been lovely.  However, this is tomato and pepper growing season at our house.  They like heat.  Hot and humid is their friend.  I’ve been picking tomatoes, but they aren’t ripening as fast as they usually do this time of the year.  And because we’ve had so much rain and so many cool days and nights, they aren’t producing like they did last year.  My main goal with the tomatoes this year, other than eating them, was canning tomato sauce.   I didn’t can nearly enough last year and hopefully I’ll get enough ripe San Marzano tomatoes for several jars of sauce this year.  As usual though, my gardening experience has already taught me much about what I’ll do different next year.
