Weekly Farm Update! 5/30/11
Enough talking about the food and show it off. Today we start with one of the upside down tomato planters that was made from a 2 liter bottle of coke. This one has 2 large tomatoes. I'm not sure as to what these are and all I know is that these will be eaten once ripe.
I'm not holding my breath on these and have possible plants that may take their place. I have tomato, eggplant and may try growing some carrots between it all. The carrots I planted in the main tomato raised bed are looking good and will be enjoyed as well.
The peppers will be hopefully be enjoyed through the entire season.
On the tomatillo front, I am happy to say that I found a few that are getting larger! It looks like I will be ok. It may be that there are pollinating insects out there helping me out.
We saw this last year and fell in love with them. The rains from this last winter soaked the ground so much that the main part of the cactus started falling over but there are 4-5 new stems that are under a foot tall and look pretty healthy.
This is it for this week and I will be back next week with more photos!
