A July morning in Southern California

Being one block from the beach, there is our June gloom, continuing into July, with the sky overcast nearly all morning and the morning dew on my plants. I like how the dew highlights the outlines of my plants, pretty but definitely not summery.

Tomato flower

Green tomatoes will stay green a bit longer. I'm glad I plant only coool weather tolerant toamtoes. These are my Japanese Black Trifele, apparently a Russian tomato. I bet there is an interesting back story to this variety but I haven't yet found it. Though this is my first year growing these, I'm already quite fond of them.
