July GARDEN Update! So Many VEGGIES!

It's time for my July garden update! I'm super excited to give you a garden tour and show you how everything is growing! Things are really starting to get into gear and we're beginning to get some nice harvests. This is just that start and it looks like we have some giant harvests in our future!

I'm especially excited to show you how the Black Beauty tomatoes are doing. This is my first year growing this black tomato variety and we've already harvested a few fruits! In this video, I talk a little bit about how you know when Black Beauty tomatoes are ripe and when to pick them.
