Garden status

Last post for tonight, I swear!

All of the original plants have been transplanted into large pots. All of them are flowering. The second wave of plants are mostly still in their peat pots, but I got the Celebrity and the watermelon in the ground this afternoon. My plan for tomorrow is to get the cucumbers and most of the tomatoes into the ground and to put the peppers into the largest pots I have to give them plenty of room. I may keep the cherry tomato in a pot too, since it seems to be more of a bush variety and probably won’t need a trellis.

The cherry tomato is the only plant to produce anything edible as of yet. I’ve gotten a total of 10 tomatoes off of it so far and it has a bunch of unripe fruits. Several more are close to being ready to pick.

The Fresno pepper has several fruits, one of which is about 3 inches long and should be ready to pick very soon. It seems to be picking up the pace in its production.

The Thai hot pepper has shown its first fruit, which is less than a centimeter long as of today.

The Sweet Million has dozens of small, green fruits. Nothing is ripe yet, but I’m looking forward to sampling them.

The Roma plant has finally shown its first fruit. It’s small and almost a lime green.

The Celebrity has a single tomato showing, but it’s tripled in size in the past couple of days.

I’m going to try and grab some pictures tomorrow.

    Sweet Millions produce, well, TONS of fruit. You’ll be overwhelmed with many, many tomatoes as soon as they ripen, and Murphy’s Law says they’ll all ripen at once. 🙂

    I’m really looking forward to the German Queen and the Brandywine. I’ve never had any heirloom varieties and I love beefsteaks. Gonna have to get some good bread, a little fresh ground pepper, and some sea salt and make myself a tomato sandwich when they’re ready.
