|Cloudy skies all week. Finally the rain came on Thursday night.|
|Sweet 100 (red) and Sun Sugar (yellow) tomatoes can be sliced in half or added whole to a salad.|
I was getting about the same amount of tomatoes from each one.
But now the Sun Sugar has slowed down production and the Sweet 100 has speeded up!
|Lettuces and peas will be planted next week.|
I am planning to plant two types of lettuce:
Grand Rapids is a loose leaf lettuce, and Bibb is a butterhead variety.
I have not grown either one before, so I am eager to see how they do.
Another cool weather vegetable I am trying for the first time is Little Marvel peas.
The packet says "8-12 days to germination, 61 days to harvest"
Little green peas can be cooked like any other pea, but we like them sprinkled raw on our salads.
Have a wonderful week-end!
