The gardeners are sick but the garden healthy

Some virus has struck inside this week. Not fun! I ventured out today to water my garden. Outside was very healthy.

The cauliflower was finally forming heads.

And I found this season's first ripe tomato.

There was a bloom on the flowering pear tree.

And just one sunflower.

The gerbera daisies have been blooming all winter.

On Saturday, when I was healthy, I planted tomato seeds that I found last Fall in Utah. I put them on a heat mat in the greenhouse. I've never had success with tomatoes from seed before - unless you count the volunteers that bounce up every once in awhile. We'll see how it goes.

Arizona has a short winter and a very early Spring. It's the summer that feels long.

Get better Laurel! I'm tempted to sneak over and steal that luscious tomato.
