My First Pepper Has Arrived!
This garden is trial and error for me. I'm continually studying and making adjustments that won't disturb the plants. I mulched the tomato plants with dried grass from the lawn this morning. As I was doing research last night, I learned that I needed to cage my eggplants and peppers. I'm heading out shortly to purchase a few cheap cages for them. Ching, ching, 5 more cages.
Eggplant 2 weeks ago.
The tomatoes are doing great. Below is a shot of the Sweet 100. Can't wait to pop a few of these babies in my mouth. I eat them like grapes. I had to add a tie to the stake this morning. This means it's heading up the pole as Mama wants it to.
This is a shot of my Roma tomato plant. I'm going to can these to use in my vegetable soup and chili during the winter. I planted an Amish Paste as well. I'm a big fan of Amish anything, so I'm looking forward to seeing which of the two I like best for sauce.
