So it looks like I have my first tomato of the season. Blooms are starting to appear on my tomato plants and after some debate I decided to put out some additional plants in the open space between my peppers and cukes. I picked up some nice okra plants and an eggplant for the wife. She loves eggplants but I just haven’t found a taste for them yet. If we get a couple this season maybe I will give it another try.
I also picked up a couple watermelon plants that I’ll post pictures of a little later.
Below are some of the pepper plants (mainly cayenne peppers, top of pic), the new okra plants (middle row, there are 3 total plants, one is not shown), the eggplant is in lower left and one of the cucumber plants bottom right. I still have to put together some type of climbing net for the cucumbers.
The straightneck yellow squash has doubled in size since I planted them about 2 weeks ago. Looks like we will get a bumper crop this year. What shall we do with so much squash???
