Cherokee Purple has some nice big tomatoes as well, but they're right next to the monster zucchini plant and it's hard to get a good picture of them.
We finally got a good soaking rain today, and it's been in the 80's all week. You can feel the sigh of relief from the tomato plants. But next week it's back to 90's and 100 degree weather (35 Celsius). The tomato plants are nowhere near as lush as last year when it was cooler and wetter, but the zucchini and summer squash are loving the heat.
It's so wonderful to have the backyard fully fenced. And today we spread grass seed and straw over the newly graded and composted non-garden area. Soon our little one will have a new grassy area to play in next to the garden. I'm so excited! Maybe we'll get a toddler swing and wading pool.
