Fresh from the Truck Patch
Last week, Mary was able to go out to Hawksbill Cabin and spend some time there - she left me in charge of the truck patch while she was gone, and I was able to coax the tomato plants along enough to produce a couple of fruit - before July 4 even!
Here are the first two tomatoes out of the patch. This week, she has quite a few crook neck yellow squash showing up, and there are the first eggplants too. Meanwhile, she's pulled off several more tomatoes - and the first two have been eaten!
Now, I also have a photo here from Public House Produce. Their first haul of tomatoes came in last week as well - of course, David is growing heirlooms at scale. So this is just a peek at what's to come for the rest of the summer harvest season.
Hopefully the combination of wet and hot weather means a good truck patch season for everybody!
