I wanted to give all of you an update on my Heirloom Tomatoes from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I almost lost them, as I had the seedlings standing out in the sun, and then the South Florida weather changed in an instant. Instead of sunshine, we had a huge storm pass through, and if I had not remembered to bring to heirloom tomato seedlings into cover, they would have been severely hit by the rain.

My husband and I are now on a mission to build a special tomato box for the heirloom tomatoes, but I think I will give them at least two weeks more before I move them into their permanent spot. I want to make sure that the tomato seedlings are strong enough to withstand the heavy South Florida rain, which we have been getting lately.
Our weather has been extremely odd in April, and we have had rain all week. It is doing wonders for the garden though, and our new lawn really needed to be soaked a few times.
A lot of my tomato plants are already done for the year, but I do have more tomato plants growing at different stages. The mangoes are getting huge, and the herb garden is flourishing.
My middle son brought home lima bean plants from kindergarten, so he is watching them closely. I have never grown lima beans before, so I hope they will turn out alright.
Finally, the frugal garden has gotten its first sun flower of the year, and it is a beauty. If you look at this sun flower photo, I bet you won’t believe that we live in the city. I have planted sun flowers all along our reed fence this year, and I cannot wait for all of the plants to start brightening up the fence a bit.
