Vine Ripe Tomatoes

We got our first vine-ripe tomatoes this morning. They started turned a few days ago and we were tempted to pick them because we feared critters would come and scarf them up before we had our first BLT, but we held off.
This morning we walked down before sunrise and picked several tomatoes as big as a softball.
Not only are the tomatoes coming in, but the green beans, the purple hull peas and the zucchini are coming in right now too.
It has been unseasonably hot the last few weeks, but yesterday when we returned from the memorial service, the bottom fell out for about 15 minutes.
When I looked this morning, the okra looked as if it had grown a foot. I predict we'll be eating fresh okra by the 4th of July or shortly thereafter.
I love America.
