One tough lady

bug! Maybe because I’m making a point of watering them adequately, all three of my tomato plants (two Little Porters and one Juliet) are still slowly and steadily producing flowers and tomatoes. At first I thought I’d placed them in too much shade, but I think the shade has helped protect them a little against this spring and summer’s extended high heat and low rain. At 10:02 p.m., it's down to 93 degrees F (almost 34 degrees C) here. Sigh.

Lucky you to have tomatoes still setting. I see your little friend is taking care of any aphid problems that might show up.

Yes, I do feel lucky, especially since it's the first time I've ever tried to grow any. Now I'm just waiting for them to get bigger than marbles.
