Here's what the tomato plants looked like right about a month ago...
And here's what we're working with now!
I'm just worried that there's hardly any fruit on them yet - and none of it close to ripe. Plenty of flowers, though. Tomato growers - are we on track? Are we going to see some ripe fruit this year?
And that's not all. Since I blogged about gardening last, I picked up a green pepper plant. It is getting SO BIG! It's a monster!
The best part of the entire plant, though, is the lone pepper we have - it's kind of funny hanging there all by iteself. I have no idea how big it's supposed to get or when to pick it (will it get as big as a grocery store sized green bell pepper?) and I'm kind of wondering why it's the only fruit on the entire plant thus far. Something is better than nothing I guess? : )
As you can see - the pots and plants are taking over the back steps. If we have success this year we are going to have to for sure make plans for next year to have some raised beds in our side yard for veggies. I really am longing for homegrown veggies all summer long!
