...the tomatoes are in the ground. I planted four varieties: Wisconsin 55, Roma, Brandywine and Juliet grape. I usually do 6 or 7 tomato plants, but it is very hard to can at boiling hot temps with a child underfoot, so I scaled back.
I also got a little silly in the garden, like these gnomes guarding the snap peas from the naughty chipmunks.
I was in the garden tonight until 9:30pm. I don't usually garden in the dark, but I had more seeds to plant and 80˚ and dark was better than 90˚ plus and sunny. I almost started a rhubarb pie when I got in tonight, but my energy fizzled out.
Oh! I thought of one last harbinger of summer: we leave to go camping tomorrow! I may have to make the pie before we leave. We used to be backpack campers, but if we have to do car camping with a baby, we might as well enjoy some homemade pie.
