Haven't had much time in yard and garden lately. Husband had eye surgery. Did take walk through this past Monday. Have somethings blooming. Beetles haven't got to the Rose of Sharon yet this year. They have done a job on my roses, now leaves look like lace. My tomatoes are not ripe yet sure wish they would hurry up I am ready for some good fresh tomatoes.

Tomato Garden

Haven't had much chance to be in the yard and garden this week do to medical problems my hubby and I have. This week has been spent seeing doctors and going for test. Hope most of that is over for a few weeks.
Was checking on my tomato garden this morning, some pictures of it. I have some tomatoes on two of the early girl tomato plants and some on one of the Better boy plants. Should not be long before we have some tomatoes to eat.
