Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

One of the tomatoes starting to ripen

These are determinate tomatoes in this pot. I prefer indeterminate but accidentally got a determinate. Determinate tomatoes have a certain amount of set fruit and after they ripen that is it for them. The indeterminate tomatoes will vine and produce all summer into the fall.

We had to pick this eggplant early along with two others because of what was on the other side.

We do not use and fungicide or pesticides and this mold is what we have to deal with on our squash leaves.
