Garden Update!

Posted on

I don’t believe I have updated my garden here at all, so I will remedy that now.


My tomatoes, as you can see from the bit of wire this is from my “boxed” tomatoes.  I finally have 2 ripening tomatoes, both are on the same plant.  This is my,A Grappoli D’ Inverno tomatoes.  Now the funny thing here is, this tomato plant is the one that was half eaten by bugs.

I am very glad that it is still healthy enough to be ripening some tomatoes on it.  It is right next to my Amish Paste Tomato, it is covered in green tomatoes.  I can’t wait to see them ripening, I wonder how red they get.

I believe the Orange Purple Smudge might be in my back garden, but I won’t know for sure until they ripen.  The reason I think they are is that there is a plant back there that is green, but the green is kinda two toned.

I am starting to get mini cucumbers forming on my Lemon cucumbers, it seems they form in bunches as I have seen them in bunches.  I am hoping they finish up fast as I can’t wait to try them.  I have harvested about 6 Red Noodle Beans, which is a “yard” long bean.  I also harvested some of my Black Seeded ones, but as they were a tad “buggy” the chickens got to eat them.

No melons or squash as yet, though I am hoping one of either to start producing soon.  Now I have a “tour” of my garden space in back for you, it’s in 2 segments as my photo camera can take short vids.  I hope you enjoy them:

This first one was a “test” to see how long I could run it this next one is what I didn’t get to show in the first one, which for now isn’t much. Next year or maybe even this fall we will be adding more “bed” space to the garden.

…and here for those of you who,like cats:

It’s my “little dini”  or Houdini, our “escape artist” kitten who has attached himself to me.  As some cats do as any cat owner knows, that when a cat decides they love you, you the best thing “since sliced bread”.  He likes me so much he seems to almost be permanently attached to my chest.


Well that’s it for now.

BE Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
