It is certainly the dog days of summer. It's so hot. But Matthew has been faithfully watering his plants.
His hard work is paying off in the pepper pot.
Hey Matthew, what are you doing? Well, I take this seed ball in my hand and I step on it...
See Mom??? We seem to have "wild garlic" in the flower bed and this is it's top set. I would saying it's walking onions, but some of it is definitely garlic.
Here is a picture of the plants that have died off for the time being.

This guy has been a guest in our garden the last couple days. Matthew and I were pretty intrigued by him.
One of the radishes has popped up. It has such a long stem that Matthew thinks it's broken. I told him to just wait.
We seem to have alot of baby carrots going.
And most exciting of all, we have our first baby tomato. I told a friend of mine that they were setting blooms, but none were catching. She told me to take a finger and thump the flowers gently to help them. I don't know if it worked or not, but we have a tomato and that's enough for me!
Week 16 of The Inadvertent Farmer is here.
