My backyard is only marginally productive. We just picked our second squash of the season. Last Sat a.m. I picked a couple of small peppers and gave first squash and peppers to the couple next door, since we were nomads until we checked into the time share on Sunday morning. Yesterday got several tomatoes, but all but one had blossom end rot or other issues. I do have some cherry tomatoes coming along that s/b okay. Has not been a good year for my little garden, between all the rain early and then the heat.
Ah, but basil is going great!
