My tomatoes are delicious and starting to ripen by the dozens, but I'm freaked about this late blight that's spreading around the Northeast.

More limes. And a couple of lemons. The lemon tree is a young one so this is only the second year it's given fruit. Last year there were 5. So far this year, at least a dozen. The lime tree, on the other hand, is producing limes with gusto.

And for dinner, I cut a bunch of rosemary off the rosemary bush which is about three feet high and two feet wide. It would probably be twice that size except I prune it aggressively to keep it from going woody and straggly.

It's mid July and I picked another ten pounds of freestone peaches and canned them.

I also picked a 3-pound Ambrosia cantaloupe, and a half-pound of strawberries.
