Mid-August, and my tomatoes and I have mutually acquiesced to the late summer sun. Burnt and ragged, the tomato foliage weakly screens a fashionably late bounty of fruit. My attention to pest and weed management, as well as to twice daily watering, wandered off sometime in late July. Luckily, it seems the bugs and drought gave up about the same time, so my tiny garden is thriving with minimal maintenance.
