Tuesday Garden Party - Getting Close!

Things are moving along here in our garden, and it looks like we'll have a variety of wonderful veggies soon.  Here's what you'll find if you take a look around:

Oh my - our hydroponic lettuce is growing like crazy!  And it really does taste amazing!

The first of the corn is nearly ready - this one has a lot of odd growth....

And guess what is growing again?  That's right - more lemons!

Our sweet peppers are growing like crazy.

I'm not sure you can see how well they are doing from that last picture - here's something to help with scale.  Lovely!

More beautiful jalapenos too!

Starting the summer peas.

This guy just sprang up suddenly.  I decided to keep him, even though this isn't his pot.  He's got flowers, which could mean tomatoes.

And besides, the basil that is growing in that pot is doing well - and they are said to grow well together.

Boysenberries growing taller.

Blackberries not as much.

Tomatoes though?  Getting going!  Some have bunches....

... some are oblong...

... some have odd shapes...

... some are wrinkly...

... and a few are ittty bitty.

This is what we did with the first couple of volunteers off the vine.  We're hoping for more soon!

Check back next week to see what else we're up to in the garden - in the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.

  2. I think you could write a children's book about all the characteristics of your tomatoes! Fun :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by. You sure have a lot of garden vegs! One day....

  4. Just looking at those green peppers makes me hungry

    You know there are some wonderful scents in the world but when you saute up some pepper and onion together in a pan you wish they could just bottle THAT scent :)

  5. Mrs Zent,

    Thanks for coming by. Your harvest looks wonderful and the plants look very healthy. Hoping you have many more harvests to come.

  6. Your garden is so prolific! And you've had ripe tomatoes already--I am so jealous! I've got a bunch of greenies, but no red ones yet. Have a lovely week!
