Harvest time

posted on June 12, 2010 at 10:25 am

My transplanted Early Girl tomato plant is yielding so much fruit already. I’ve harvested 15 tomatoes from it. My zucchini plants have also exploded. There are baby and full-grown zucchinis everywhere. I have also been harvesting my Ichiban eggplants.

The biggest surprise in my garden has been the watermelon plants. Check out this fruit that went from the size of a whopper last week to the size of grapefruit today. So excited to see how these pan out.

Everything is still growing very well. The tomatoes, okra, green beans, and jalapeno plants I planted in Farmer D’s soil are growing ridiculously fast. The tomatoes already have tons of blossoms. Who knew gardening was this easy? Now, if there was just a way for me to get over my childish fear of wasps and creepy crawly things…

    I’m ridiculously jealous of urban rooftop gardening. You have a huge advantage – no g*d damned squirrels. Little bastards eat EVERYTHING.

    Congrats on the fruits (and veggies) of your labor. Anybody know a farmer’s market around that truly sells fruit and vegetables from farms? I like Peachtree and Morningside but am looking for a market that offers numerous farmers selling what they are growing, organic or not. I’m somewhat tired of all the artisanal stands and just want tried and true fruits and veggies.
