Saliha, my one hummingbird drank nectar out of my Scarlet Runner Bean blossoms the other day!

That's the main reason I grow them, since I find the beans a bit tougher than other varieties.

Your photos are lovely!

At the left tomatoes.


Tomatoes are still green:

the garden differences are amazing. stuff that takes more daylight hours (?) is always far ahead of where we are - but stuff like tomatoes lag.

here the 'dream' is to get a ripe tomato by 1. July - happens infrequently in the open garden, but we get field grown tomatoes - done in 'hoop houses' - locally as early as May.

Here is a lot of daylight hours but summer is short and here too it´s only a dream to get ripe tomatoes. Most of those I have to ripen indoors.

many Germans use small glass houses/greenhouses for tomatoes -
see just to the left of the tree trunk, in the background - my neighbor's setup.... not real big, just enough for specific plants....

tomatoes are sensitive to temperature swing to pollinate

"
Optimum fruit set occurs within a very narrow night temperature range of between 60° F and 70° F. So, when tomato plants experience night temperatures lower than 55° F or above 75° F, interference with the growth of pollen tubes prevents normal fertilization. The pollen may even become sterile, thus causing the blossoms to drop.
"

and humidity plans a role as well

You have nice flowers Lee. My sunflowers don´t have flowers yet and not sure if they have time for flowering as here is already quite chilly weather.

Looks yummy harvest.

If so, how do you use them?

No, I haven´t tried eggplants. When I have used them, I usually make moussaka or use them like zucchinis. They aren´t very familiar vegetable for Finnish cuisine.
