Sunflowers luminous

Tomatillo: new to my 2015 garden

 photo IMG_1623_zpsrwu3y2n5.jpg

This tomatillo plant was planted from seed this year and transplanted to my garden a few weeks ago. It resembles a tomato plant somewhat. Somewhat, but as you see here, the flowers are a bit different.

Family: Solanaceae (same as the tomato and potato); Genus & species: Physalis philadelphica

Odd that the species is named after Philadelphia. According to Wikipedia:

Tomatillos were domesticated in Mexico before the coming of Europeans, and played an important part in the culture of the Maya and the Aztecs, more important than the tomato

Maybe these would throw the predatory squirrels for a loop.

First Black Krim of the year

Late start this year to the tomatoes. Today I spied this one hidden in the leaves! We are having the morning fog but the evening temps rarely drop below 60 which makes it fine for tomatoes.
