Grandpa's Garden Is Blooming
My dad's garden at his house is going strong. The tomato plants are big and starting to get loaded with green tomatoes. We will anxiously wait and watch them as they slowly turn to red.
tomatillo. He has three of them and says that next year he will know to just plant one. There are tons of blooms on each plant. The tomatillo is a Mexican tomato that is covered in a paper shell. Right now the plant looks like they have Chinese lanterns hanging on them. The paper shells grow first and the tomato expands inside the shell. So right now, when you squeeze the paper shells they are full of air!
and, we don't know what this flower is called, but it is very pretty and the greenery with it is very soft and whispery......
