Summer has heated up with record temperatures so far. Plants like tomatoes and peppers really thrive in the heat as long as there is sufficient rainfall/watering. The greens and flowers are not so thrilled. Below is a shot of the 4th of July Tomatoes (from Burpee). They are compact and ripen quickly. They are pretty tasty too - we've enjoyed them with the basil as a topping for pasta.
