The cherry tomatoes have begun to ripen, just a few on this plant and that plant. I have to walk up and down many rows to fill a flat of pint baskets. The extra early heirloom tomato variety glacier has started ripening too. It makes for a tasty tomato sandwich, which I have been enjoying for breakfast each day. So it is clear that summer has arrived! I can’t wait for more heirlooms to ripen, as I like to diversify my daily tomato sandwich intake.
In other news the Dakota black popcorn has begun to tassel out and it is still growing taller than the weeds. Every time I walk by the corn field I cheer on the popcorn in its race to beat the weeds, I’m really hoping the popcorn wins because that field is not getting weeded, I just don’t have time.
