East coast weather quickly went from wet and wild to hot and steamy! And our garden is heating up too. We spent Memorial Day weekend planting the tomatoes and basil and firing up the watering system. The blueberry bushes we bought a month ago are already bursting with nearly ripe berries. Can't wait to try them! The rest of the veggie plants are prospering in the heat too. The eggplants and peppers are growing tall and leafy, the cucumber seedlings I bought at the Union Square Green Market are already flowering and the ones I planted from seed are coming along nicely.
It should be a productive summer (if the ants and aphids don't spoil the fun - stay tuned)!
