Default Summer is (finally) officially here

Summer is officially here!!!! Here's the first few tomatoes, about 3 weeks late but all in all life is now good. I'll be living on these with a bit of fresh mozzarella and basil for the next month. The large ones are "Brandywine" and "Prudens purple" the funny looking one"Japanese Black Triffle" meant to be eaten when the shoulders are still green. The first two are my favorites of all and the JBT being grown for second straight year and has great flavor. The bananas were "Manzano" as well as some longan fruit they had at the nearby Asian Market. "Pisang Ambon" a banana liquor based on an Indonesian recipe..........marenmar got me thinking about getting some so.........summer's here........life's good.

Lucky you! It seems like Summer is winding down here with the shorter days and cooler evening temps.

Same here.
Bob, I've been eating tomatoes from my garden since late June and early July (no greenhouse). I harvested most of my tomatoes just 2 weeks ago (about 50 or 60, they are "timed", so that I don't have too much at one time) and they were just delicious. It's the last time they weren't fertilized, 'cause from now on, I'm gonna vermicompost them in spring and summer.

I believe that this time next year you will be eating your first home-grown naners. Toast on that, with Pisang Ambon.

Thanks all, I just tasted the Pisang Ambon sine I havent had it in years, I took 1/3 shot glass straight, Cheryl and Mitchell , did they have that yellow banana flavored gum I had as a kid when you guys were growing up. It tastes exactly like it, too sweet alone but meant to mix with 2/3 Orange Juice.
Jack, thanks ....hope so, I will certainly toast to that later tonight!

Yes, I do remember the gum. I hated it! I was more into the sour candies.

ok here's a Pisang Ambon update: as sickening sweet and banana candy like sipped straight, it is a marvelous summer cooler mixed with 2/3 orange juice as reccomended on the label. Probably too good since we're in the midst of a heat wave (finally), I'm now making them by the "hurricane" glass....very refreshing!!!
