Pam has been busy planting. Almost all of the tomatoes were started from heirloom seeds. One, named Carmello is of particular interest as that was my father’s first name.
The spring/summer garden had its ups and downs. The big down was that one of our beds were so hot, not only did we not got any production from all the veggies we planted – weeds did not grow either. This season I removed about 1/3 of the soil and replaced it with our compost. This is the bed that has all the tomatoes. I think you’ll agree, the plants are enjoying this soil a lot. Here is a listing of what tomatoes she has planted here:
Maruel Stripe – Neptune – Believe it or not – Federal – Amish Paste – Carmello – Porter – and Chiapa’s Wild
This bed has two more tomatoes together with lemon cucumber (new to us), broccoli, butternut squash, egg plant, and several types of herbs. Outside the bed are two buckets with basil. Yea! Pesto sauce in the making.
TWO WEEK UPDATE
Pam and I are just amazed at how this fall garden has taken off. Something we did this season must be right as one can almost watch the plants grow. Of course a little drinking might help as you stand and watch!!
Here is what has occurred in this short period of time.
Sweet Potatoes are a com’n!
And so are the Butternut Squash and more!
Some good eats are coming our way. Would anyone like a dinner invitation??
