This morning I went out to trim the zucchini plants growing on the left side of the garden box. Getting around to the back of the raised beds to water my tomato plants has a little tricky lately since the winter squash are growing right behind the tomato plants.
And I don’t even feel bad about it. After all I’ve already made a gazillion loaves of zucchini bread and a year’s supply of zucchini relish. Sure I’ll miss grilled zucchini as a side dish but c’mon people…. tomatoes are just a little higher on the priority list don’t you think?
Now all I need to do is get in there and prune my tomato plants, tie them up and then I can plant another round of green beans and some fall crops like carrots and beets. Once the weather cools down a bit I’ll set out my lettuce and broccoli starts. Maybe even some bok choy.
How are YOUR tomatoes doing? Are you harvesting them yet, or are they stubborn like mine and taking their own sweet time this year?
