Squash Blossoms and Green Tomatoes
After a full week of sun, the plants in our borrowed garden space are flourishing.
We have bright yellow blossoms on summer and winter squash vines. When I look into the flowers, I often see two three or types of bees loading up on pollen.
This squash flower has a tiny blue hubbard fruit attached.
We also have dozens of green tomatoes that are rapidly growing.
And sungolds that are starting to ripen. I can hardly wait for the cooler temperatures and red tomatoes of the fall.
