My neighbor dropped off some homegrown #cucumbers. This is what he had left after making 84 qts of pickles. I will be showing off the jar of pickles when they’re ready.

Let’s see the art @healinginheels

Cleaning up!
No more dry leaves in my pots as the neighbor's tree has been chopped. Also no longer a fire risk. Theur roof still looks bad though.

It's tomato time!
Yakir and I are happy to have the first tomatoes from our garden!
This year we have two tomato plants. One is an heirloom baby plum tomato plant that produces somewhat elongated fruit like mini plum tomatoes. The plant was a gift from Chef Debbi, who raised it from a seed! Thank you, Chef Debbi!
The other is a Big Boy tomato plant that we bought at the 99 Cents Store.
We love watching the plants grow, seeing the first flowers come, then seeing the baby green tomatoes form, then watching them ripen and hoping the critters won't get them!
The weather has been hot in the San Fernando Valley, and the plants grew fast. Yakir tied the tomato cages to our palm trees for support.
It's such a pleasure to eat tomatoes that have the aroma and flavor of real tomatoes! They turn even the simplest of salads into a treat. Sometimes we eat them just sliced, as is, or with a bit of sea salt and extra virgin olive oil.

There’s something nostalgic about deplaning onto the airfield. Casablanca maybe?

These #mnmidgetcantaloupes plants are growing!

The #plumeria is completely my back.

I just picked these beauties. I love the green zebra #tomatoes!

Who doesn’t like Kevin (@epicgardening)? This is just a little bit of the #instalove that came from him. Go check out his profile and YouTube channel.

This Aji dulce is just starting to ripen.

Here is a close up of the “Peruvian Aji”. I don’t see any corking but it may be too hard to see since they are so light in color. It may not show until they ripen to red.

The #cucamelon plant suffered in the recent heatwave but it seems to be recovering. I should have seeds that I will plant out soon.

The #watermelon is sizing up.

I wanna see how big this #zucchini gets in a week.

A couple of black beauty #eggplants are just hanging out. These may get clipped tomorrow but I may just wait til next week.

As the start of #comiccon falls upon the cosplayers-here’s past shots of my boy @regulardrew as Jack, Harry & Peter

Too cool - I got 200 followers today - thanks all that have followed the beginner gardeners journey! #backyardgarden #addictedtomygarden #backyardgarden #socalgarden #socalgardener #socalgardening #zone10 #instagarden #urbangarden #urbangardening #gardenlife
