A Harvest

Well, I did it. I actually grew some tomatoes! I picked them this morning and they are ripe and beautiful! 

They actually came off what I call my "cheater plants" .. the tomato plant I bought fully grown.I also have 2 tomatoes on another one of my cheater plants. But, I have about 8 tomato plants that I started as seeds that are doing fantastic, and I am certain that in a month or so I will be enjoying tomatoes from them!

I have one green bean. And now the green bean plant is dying. So, I think I'll just pick it and eat it raw and call that one quits.

I am getting ready to replant my zucchini plant in one of our flower boxes because the pot is just not big enough and it's starting to die off.

I have so much basil that I can't even use it all. It's crowding out my little pepper plants, so I hope they can continue to grow and maybe produce some peppers by the end of summer.

All in all, this has been a fun experience for me because I knew nothing about vegetable gardening before I started. I have gained some knowledge and next year will be so much better.

For now, I'll just go fix some BLTs and enjoy my two tomatoes.


  1. good job farmer nicole :)

    I am praying and trusting my honey is keeping all my stuff alive. We had a nice size pepper growing right before I left but no tomatoes?? weird! The green beans were doing great dad told me to pick them as they were ready and freeze them until I had enough to cook for everyone!

    Hope all is well with you guys and "girls" :)

    Miss you!

  2. Your garden is definitely thriving. I love garden grown tomatoes. Too bad I don't live closer.
    Marcus, our teen, just loves BLTs. I'll probably make some this week. Thanks for the suggestion.
