Today was a little cooler than the past few days, instead of around 90, today's high was only 73. The skies were so clear and no smothering humidity, just a gorgeous day. Vegetable gardening is boring right now since there are no weeds to pull in a square foot garden and everything is planted, I'm just waiting for more harvest. In a few days I will need to re-tie my tomatoes since they are growing gangbusters, the pole beans are at the top of their trellis already. I don't know what I will do about them, I may try trimming the tops of a few to see what happens. They should begin to bloom soon. I have a few lemon-sized tomatoes, but lots of blooms, plus some tomatoes that haven't started to bloom yet. The pepper plants are slowly growing, the corn is close to knee-high.
This has been a crazy Spring and things are not as far along as last year:
May 17, 2010 corn:

As you can see, quite a bit of difference, but this will come along fine & I expect a good harvest.
