These Litchi Tomato (or Morelle de Balbis) plants are looking very ferocious! This plant has spikes on every single surface, including the leaves, which are lines with barbs. Yes, it hurts -- not touching it again! According to the write up, the berries taste like a cross between a cherry and a tomato....hope we get a chance to try them.
The pole beans on the Bean Haus are starting to show tendrils reaching for the wire.
Here's the large red cherry tomato -- lots of tomatoes on it.
This is the Better Boy tomato. Only one so far.Golden Snow Peas -- they're small and they are twisting up in all kinds of shapes. I could be my soil, of the quickly warming weather. They taste great, just not as pretty as I would like. The green peas are much nicer shape.
The Sugar Snap Peas look great and are just now starting to show up.
Tonight I brought in some of the Vulcan Swiss Chard that I planted this year, and some of the Luculus Chard that's been growing all winter in a pot! These plants are just super producers, and they need a good thinning out quite often. I really love chard, its so mild and delicious - a great way to get your greens.
There's a few of the snow peas and a few tomatoes that have started turning. I'll put them on the window sill until they are totally ripe.
Pretty veins in the Vulcan chard.
I was buying a few more flower plants the other day at Rainbow Gardens and walked by this stone tablet....I really needed this sentiment since I've been down about all the mini-tragedies our garden has had this year. It helped give me new purpose!!
