I am going to keep this short, as I need to finish getting ready for vacation tonight.
Lots of growth this week, the peppers and tomatoes have really been taking off. I am up to 91 tomatoes and 113 peppers on my plants. I had to spend a bit of time this evening pruning a few tomato plants as they were showing sings of blight on some of the lower leaves.
The first picture here is on my carbon plant, and it was from my largest megabloom. You can actually see 4 distinct tomatoes fused into one. It is kind of ugly, but should prove to be quite a mater.
The next two are of my Golden King of Siberia tomatoes. They are the biggest and most prolific right now with 17 tomatoes on the plant.
This is just a current snapshot of my tomatoes.
The squash have really taken off, they are in danger of shading my lone Vorlon behind them.
A current picture of my Purple Jalapeno. I love the way this plant looks!
Next is my Big Jim plant. This was my favorite pepper last year, I couldn’t believe the flavor on this once they turned ripe. I already have more on this plant than I got all last year, I can’t wait!
That is it for this week. I will post at more length next week, and have some updated pictures.
