I give myself 1 green thumb
April 19, 2013 | I diligently planted my garden in October as "they" say one should. Frankly I'm not sure that was such a good idea.
The initial harvest from the garden has been very meagre: one tiny red pepper and a few cherry-sized tomatoes. Two of the tomato plants were killed in a winter freeze.
But now that spring is here, things are looking up. As reported yesterday, the herbs are flourishing. This morning I took stock of the vegetables. Another handful of (barely) bite-sized, ripe tomatoes could be harvested, and the other two tomato plants, replaced after the freeze, are starting to show promise of normal-sized tomatoes. And the pepper plants are producing as well, although neither plant is the size that I think a pepper plant should be; neither is even 9 inches tall.
Tomato plant #1 has several green tomatoes, these of normal size
The red pepper plant has another pepper that is beginning to turn.
The yellow pepper plant has a medium-sized pepper, but it has not yet begun to turn yellow
