Mowed the lawn, and hauled out most of the trash. Still a ways to go, but, today was the first day in a very long time I did a walkabout, and did nothing except enjoy the yard. Hurray!

I find it very rewarding to give away fresh picked vegetables. People really seem to appreciate it and it gives me such satisfaction to be able to share with friends and neighbors.

I don't need to know someone well to give them veggies. I give them to the local mailmen, the UPS Driver, my car mechanic, the local park gatekeeper, all the people I talk to walking my dog (that usually also have dogs), my neighbors all thru the block and my friends.

Week 6:
I'm getting some eggplant

Bell peppers

And, I'm putting up shadecloth over my tomatoes. Still have to add extension to cages to make them 6', but I ran out of wire

Beautiful garden @gymgirl So glad you took the time just to enjoy your garden. I know I don't do that nearly often enough. I spend WAY too much time worrying about what needs to be done instead of appreciating what I have.

@texaskitty Hurray! for eggplant and peppers. Looking good!! Thumbs up

Hi everyone.

I just wanted to show you all some parts of my veggie garden. I showed you the whole thing awhile ago, but I am just posting pics of the plants that are doing best. I am aware there are a lot of weeds, I am taking care of it.

Thumb of 2017-05-17/jnicholes/7566e3

This is my biggest lettuce plant so far. Not sure if its ripe or not.

Thumb of 2017-05-17/jnicholes/bbca28

My peas are growing super fast.

Thumb of 2017-05-17/jnicholes/e9482d

This cabbage gets bigger every day, I think it will be bigger than my head!

Thats all, I hope you like the pics of my veggie garden!

All the gardens are looking good. What kind of tomato is that @Jim41, that sets so many? Only one of mine that does that is Healiani. And, they taste ordinary.

Beautiful garden, Jim! Mine should be at that stage (albeit undoubtedly not quite that neat Hilarious! ) in about 3 months... Rolling my eyes.

Jared, you can start harvesting the outer leaves from lettuce at pretty much any stage, it will keep producing leaves in the center (until the weather gets too hot, when most lettuce tends to "bolt") Smiling

Beautiful gardens!!!

I'm also anxious to know what type of tomato is in that 5th picture from the bottom that @jim41 posted. I've never seen anything set fruit that closely.

My first crop is baby bok choy.

Thumb of 2017-05-18/Yardenman/af737b

I've been harvesting individual leaves for stir-fries for 2 months. But here is a surprize! Some of the oldest ones bolted and I was pinching them off and tossing the flowers.

Well, I looked at one today and noted that it looked like a baby broccoli. I ate it. It was WONDERFUL! Sweeter than broccoli. I think I will keep them growing to bolting stage just for the sweet tips!

@Yardenman : I was just going to tell you to eat them buds. When my collards start to bolt i pinch off the buds where stem is tender, and use them in stew, stir fry, etc. Thumbs up Good Answer ! Good Thumbs up ! Thumbs up

Thanks for all the thumbs up and comments.

The tomatoes are all Bella Rosa. I've found they do best in our hot, humid weather. They will make as long as you keep them watered. They have the best taste of the hybrids that I've tried and are blight resistant. I have some tomatoes that will weigh in at about a pound and a half and are still growing. I'm ready for them to ripen.
