Lots of catching up to do since I was away for a week. It was nice and warm with lots of sun here while I was away, so the plants really shot off. The tomatoes I bagged needed to be rebagged due to the growth over the week, and a bunch of others needed to be bagged as they were just about ready to open.
This week I’ll have to be on top of seeing what’s just about to open, because a bunch more are also just about ready to open but I don’t want to bag them prematurely.
Today I bagged these tomatoes:
I transplanted Plum Tigris to take the space of ‘Calabacito Rojo’ because unfortunately, my ‘Calabacito Rojo’ had a bad run in with the weedwhacker.
While I was away a bunch of seedlings came up too, including:
I also managed to finally get the last of the manure into the back yard garden, and transplanted three more tomatoes and some basil in there.
I have a few seeds left to start for this year as well, but I’ll be doing that over the week as opposed to today. My hands are quite sore from the epic weed whacking and need a definite break.
#1: Tomato ‘Fryerfrinsborghese’ that got snapped in half and I feared for dead. In the past week and a half its put out almost 2" of new growth, and there are tiny buds forming. That’s one tough tomato.
#2: Tomato ‘Uncle Charlie’s Giant Italian Pear’ – the first to set fruit, even before my early varieties.
#3: Tomato ‘El Nano’ – a lovely sturdy little plant, should start flowering in about a week.
#4: Beans ‘Poltschka X’ – quite a bit smaller than their parent. Possibly they were crossed with a pole bean last year, hence their smaller growth. Only time will tell.
#5: Pole Beans ‘Irish Conners’ – already doing much, much better than they did in Nelson last year. Looks like they’ll do really well here, and I’ll actually be able to get a good harvest so I can start distributing the seed!
