Tuesday was fantastic. A couple of helpers moved almost ¾ of the garden…What an undertaking. If you don’t have to, DON’T MOVE YOUR GARDEN MID SEASON! LOL.
Now as for some updates, the plants are looking beautiful in their new space. While the move stressed them a tiny bit, they are coming along beautifully well. The tomatoes are everywhere and the zucchini are just about ready to pick the first ones of the season. Winning tomato was Cherokee Chocolate with TWO already harvested tomatoes. They were DELICIOUS to say the least!!! Interesting though, the smaller of the two had a whopping 4 seeds while the larger one didn’t have a seed in it. So I have to await the next ripening tomatoes to save seed.
The Blue Podded Garden peas are in abundance and so pretty to look at, but the flavor…OH MY!! We’ve been eating them like snow peas. Mammoth Melting Sugar peas are doing very well and just as sweet as ever. I think they have to be my favorite out of all the snap and snow peas, but that isn’t to say the others aren’t absolutely tasty too. Without a doubt, home grown peas are the BEST!
As you can see, the plants have a lot more space and I’ll post more pictures when we are completely moved.
