First of the 'Maters....

True to form, my first few tomatoes never get a chance to get anywhere near yellow let alone red before I pluck them off the bush and fry them up green and delicious. No one makes better Fried Green Tomatoes than I do, Sorry, I am not the best cook on the planet, but I can cook the shit out of tomatoes dag nabbit! No limp, greasy 'maters from me! Crispy and yummy only.
I Fried up the first four tomatoes, with stuffed green peppers, mashed potatoes and fresh Cucumbers off my Vines for dinner.
Oh yes I am burping Veggies and loving it. I'm out watering them damn bushes every few hours to keep them alive. This heat wave is just sucking the life out of my succulent plants.
My Cucumbers want to wilt every three hours. (Cucumbers are not easy to keep alive, especially in heat waves or stormy summers, so far BOTH....)
I'm getting short and fat cucumbers but they taste good.
I'm worry about my apple trees I planted this spring. They are looking droopy. The peach trees are looking good, but the apple trees are being persnickety! 
I'm glad I didn't plant Carolina runner green beans or corn this year, they'd be dead vines in this summer weather.

mmm, veggies^^ We have one bell pepper on one little bush, and we water them (they grew in a big pot too fast for us to plant in-ground!) daily, too--and the baby marigolds (their older relatives are surrounding the mailbox right now, and I *think* I saw some on the side of the house? Um...are marigolds invasive? o.O) and some slow/depressed hot peppers...and Lucky, the diva bamboo plant >.<
The green tomatoes sound good; someone gave us a couple in a box of garden overgrow (bell peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, yellow squash, and long green beans!) Unfortunately, by the time we'd eaten our way to them, they were red, so we sliced them thin and salt and peppered them^^
hiii! *squish*

I have hybrid trees too. They are supposed to be Fuji, Gala and Golden Delicious on one tree Fusion. I hope they live!!!!

But apparently KY is a zone OK for apples. :)
