It seems summer has finally decided to make an appearance here in Southern California. We’ve been experiencing cooler than normal temperatures all spring but we’ve managed to hit the 80 degree mark the last couple of days.
I noticed the nasturiums smiling faces on the way out to the vegetable garden this morning.
The tomatoes have a little hint of orange to them and the pumpkin and cucumber vines have decided to make their slow crawl to flowering and hopefully, a bounty of vegetables.
Can you see my tiny little bell peppers? These and the ripening tomatoes where purchased from my local nursery.
The pepper and tomato plants I started from seeds in early spring where just put into the vegetable patch out back last weekend. They are way behind schedule, the cooler temps have everything in a state of confusion.
Hopefully by next week I’ll have some pretty flowering pictures of my seeded larkspur, zinnia and cosmos. I can’t promise anything because the sun has been very persnickety this year and it just might decide to hide out a while longer. How’s the weather where you are?
