My Italian summer is going well. Most of my plantings have been successful and to celebrate summer’s bounty (so far!) here are some photos of of my produce:

Tomato heaven!

As you can tell, my tomato vines are producing well, although I don’t know if there’ll be enough to make sugo (tomato sauce) …speriamo! Of course, the taste is squisito (exquisite)!

You’ve seen my purple beauties (see my previous post). Aren’t they magnificent? And there are lots more coming along!

The apricots have been harvested and also shared with the birds.

Cucumbers are tumbling over each other to be picked:

And the nectarines and pomegranates are ripening!

Can you think of a better way to celebrate summer’s bounty!

Alla prossima! . . . Isabella
