This week’s tomato harvest…a bunch of cherry tomatoes and 1 large heirloom tomato! Plus some parsley and basil (not pictured).
So my tomato plants have taken over! The two plants on the left (just out of the picture) had fallen over the back of the trellises and were just about to touch the ground. I didn’t want any crazy squirrels getting any crazy ideas about eating my ‘maters. So I gently picked them up and placed them up on top of the trellises and on top of the snap peas. Of course, I lost my pea plants in the process. But the cherry tomato plant continues to flourish. The other 2 tomato plants that you can see in the picture have also outgrown there tomato grates and have fallen towards the right and will likely take over the beans space soon!
But I’m not complaining! We’re gonna have a bounty of tomatoes from our 4 plants this year! A true blessing!
I have 4 tomato plants in the garden. Just 1 of them is a cherry tomato plant. And can I just say, it’s out of control! I’ve probably already picked about 40-50 cherry tomatoes (between this week and the other week), and I guesstimate that there are at least another 100-120 on the plant still to ripen. So…if you have ANY favorite cherry tomato recipes, PLEASE let me know!!!
I’ve got 4 of these eggplants growing now…and can see sprouts for at least 3 more eggplants!
I really did think I’d gotten the last of my green beans. I had done 3 full harvests. Surely they’d have grown what they were going to grow. My Square Foot Gardening book said I’d likely get 2 harvests…and perhaps a 3rd in the fall. Either I’m reading it wrong, or my green beans are breaking the rules. They just keep coming! Again I was surprised to find about 1 lb. of green beans hiding under there! All in perfect shape! I also harvested the tomatoes you see above and 2 yellow squash from the garden.
My yellow squash plants have succumb to powdery mildew. Any advice on how to stop that…for next year! I might get 1-2 more squash still, but I’m not counting on it! I’m pleased to have harvested at least 10 squash from the 2 plants. Several of the tiny squash died just as the plants were getting started because they were not being pollenated…so I could have had more! I’ll know better for next year!
So anyone else harvesting anything from your garden??? I’d love to know! Leave a comment with a link or list of all you’ve gleaned thus far! All the hard work is paying off, huh?
