Square Foot Garden Update

I hadn’t planned on doing a garden update this weekend…being it’s a holiday and stuff!  BUT…

I found a little surprise this morning when I was out watering and weeding…


When I lifted up the lower branches to check on my “first” set of cherry tomatoes, I discovered they are turning red!  My other “large” heirloom tomatoes are also starting to turn red…they’re sorta an orange-y brown color.


My eggplant also has a few more beautiful purple buds growing now.  I had to get a stick and prop the plant up because the large leaves and new buds were causing it to fall over.


And my hot pepper plant is showing some growth as well!  There are 5 little peppers forming…so there’s hope for canning some HOT (as opposed to mild) salsa!  (Also being held up by a stick because it was getting a bit top heavy!)

More garden details next week.  Y’all enjoy your holiday weekend!

    Very very cool!! Our tomatoes are stuck green… but our banana peppers are starting to really come in and I’m patiently awaiting the green beans… I have no idea what else my husband planted though!!

    What a wonderful surprise! I also harvested the first of my large tomatoes today. I have never grown egg plant, but am tempted to just because their flowers are so pretty. : )

    Have a blessed weekend with your family!

    I love seeing your garden updates! :) Thanks for the peek. My tomato cages are sticks stuck in the ground and tied together with anything we could find (baling twine mostly). Kind of rinky but it works and it’s free!

    Wanted the eggplant recipes and they don’t come up. Even the tail-end of the article is missing.
