The Weather Is Finally Warm in Los Gatos

Well, whew. I was starting to think we'd never feel some hot weather. I have these enormous tomatoes but they're all green. I think they need a bit more heat to change color.
So far, I have tomatoes, peppers, melons, squash, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, onions, asparagus, and green beans going. The asparagus crowns went in the ground in January. The first year, you ignore them. But goodness it was cute watching them grow up, and then fern out.

I thought planting onions in the same area was a good idea since they're both nitrogen loving, but the gardening books say never ever do that. Whoops. Live and learn. I've been sprinkling compost and bloodmeal periodically and everyone seems happy.

I'm going to start a new blog just for gardening, and will let you know what the URL is once I finalize it.

School has been out a week, and goodness the time has flown. I'm sure the whole rest of summer will be like that. Kiddo is in the Los Gatos-Saratoga Recreation Summer School starting Monday the 22nd. She just graduated from 5th grade and will be going to middle school next year. Time has flown. She'll be attending Summer School at Fisher Middle School. I haven't been there since I graduated from 8th grade in 1981. Since then, I know they built a new gym. I'll be very curious to wander around and see if my old locker is even still there.
