On Monday evening, after work, I went out to check on my garden. I was amazed at how much things had grown, just in a few days. I guess we had just the right combination of sun and rain, because things seem to be taking right off.
So of course, I wanted to take more pictures. Which I did tonight. (For comparison, you can check out my post from a week ago: First Harvest)
From a distance, it doesn't look like much, does it?
But that little space is packed full of good things.
The tomato plants, in particular, seem to have had a growth spurt. They all have blossoms now, even my little Roma Tomato plants.
I even have my first little grape tomato.
And look at those Sunflower plants, in between the tomato plants. They still have some growing to do, but hopefully there is still time for them to actually flower.
I do wish my bean plants would grow a bit faster - they don't seem to be doing much yet.
These tomato plants are bushing out all over the place. Not that I'm complaining, because they are also producing lots of green tomatoes.
I think this plant is called Ultra Girl (which seems like a strange name for a tomato plant). Whatever it's called, the tomatoes seem to be growing very quickly. It is supposed to be an early bearing plant...Guess they know what they are talking about.
This was also an early variety, possibly called Ultra Early? Seriously, who comes up with these names.
And these are my faithful Scotia tomatoes. Lots of green ones on these plants.
The Cayenne Pepper plants seem to be working hard as well.
The tomatillo plant is starting to get blossoms as well.
I feel like I am well on my way to homemade salsa.
