Daylight Gardening Time.

Daylingt savings time is my favorite time of the year.  During the week, I usually get home from work around 6:30 pm, that gives me about an hour and half of daylight to work in the garden. 
This week I continued to prune trees, pull weeds and move plants around.

Harvest time.
This year the vegetable garden has done ok but not as well as I expected.  The salad greens are doing well and I harvested many peppers and carrots.  The tomatoes and broccoli have been a disappointment.

The extra hours of daylight in the evening are definitely a plus for gardening. Your little pea tomatoes are adorable.
