This is my tomato EarthBox. It has been growing for a few weeks. It already has tiny tomatoes growing and more flowers too. Yippie!
The two here are Early Girl tomatoes. I have utterly given up on heirloom tomatoes as they have done so poorly for me. Go figure, but my brown thumb comes out with heirlooms.
These are our tomato plants in bins. We have a cherry growing here and a large tomato - Best Boy I think. So far we have four growing, but we will probably do two more. I want to have a lot of fresh tomatoes this year.
I figure that if we can't eat them all fresh, we can make them into tomato sauce and freeze it. I use tomatoes all the time in cooking so it will be so nice to have this stored. (Those are my hopes anyway! LOL)
I know they wouldn't grow otherwise, but I do so hate to yank out healthy baby plants. :)
Now that they are up, they are growing so fast. I took these pictures a few days ago, and they are already double in size!
This is my happy bin! These gorgeous little babies are future pesto. I cannot wait until they grow so I can use it in my cooking. Basil is my "It is summer!" plant.
Do you have a favorite summer plant?
And of course, I cannot post about my garden without sharing my backyard babies enjoying some out-of-the-coop exercise...
And here one of them is doing her duty for us!
We took some of the brown and green eggs and dyed them after Easter. They just turned out so beautiful and richly colored that I thought I would share a few pictures with you.
Have a beautiful week!
