    It looks wonderful, RR and definitely like a sanctuary of your own.

    My garden is still not producing. After pruning I have more tomatoes but they are still all green. The squash is finally blossoming but not producing any fruit. With warm and moist weather I had expected better.

    We just started getting our first big tomatoes about 10 days ago, so your tomatoes will be turning red soon. I’m sure you are 10+ days behind us.

    I have been picking zucchini for a week or two, and they are doing really well. I've been making minestrone soup, and will be digging out my spiralizer. Also have picked 4 cucumbers.

    DH has 23 tomato plants and we are gearing up for the onslaught! They are mostly all green. Haven't picked any yet.

    I have decided to freeze 25 bags of tomatoes this year. That is about the number I bagged up last year, and that was a 12 month supply. I doubt DH will have time to can tomatoes, and it is so easy to freeze them. The bags probably hold about 16 ounces, so not a whole lot.
