One of the most satisfying things about gardening is watching a tiny seedling grow from seed sprout to fruit bearing plant. Though there are no tomatoes yet, of course, if the number of buttery yellow blooms are any indication, I should have enough Yellow Pear tomatoes to supply the entire town. It won’t be long before they start to form fruit.
Summer is moving on so quickly! Already the goldenrod has painted field and roadside in large clumps of mustard yellow, mixed with my favourite wildflower — China blue chicory — and delicate Queen Anne’s lace. July has almost surrendered to August. It has been a wet and inhospitable month here in the east — when it wasn’t raining, the humidity was been so high, it made any movement uncomfortable. Hopefully August will bring with it the sunny, temperate days and cool nights that Nova Scotia is famous for. :)
