Tomorrow morning I leave for my adventure camping with four of my favorite people, and I haven't even started packing yet! I just went out to the garden to see how it's doing, with only a few things left that have not been harvested. My tomatoes are just bursting out all over, but when they will begin to ripen? It can't be long now, can it?
The onions are coming along quite nicely. I have no idea when I'm supposed to harvest them, but I accidentally knocked one over while pulling weeds, and I brought it into the house. Even though it's small, it's certainly ready to be eaten, but I do think these will keep on growing in size for awhile.
I didn't plant this hollyhock flower this year, but last year I tried to grow some which didn't do well. I was quite surprised to see this volunteer appear among my vegetables. It's pretty and I like to see it doing well, even if it's a year later. I bought some black kale starts and need to get those in the ground before I take off. Time to pack up! Hope I don't forget anything too important. (let's see: toothbrush, teddy bear, sleeping bag, headlamp...)
