Tomato- Nugget

Tweet

A new tomato I tried out this year is called Nugget. It is a hybrid small plum type. I have found it to be a great producer and seems to be very resistant to cracking like other “cherry” size tomatoes. The taste is superb. It has a nice “tomato” taste. […]

Summer Veg

Tweet

This is the time of the year which I’ve been waiting for a number of months. The summer veg are in full swing. Most types are producing now. Grilling is my favorite way to enjoy them and we have been firing up the grill almost every night.

I changed […]

Pepper and Eggplant babies

Tweet

Once the Peppers and Eggplants get to their second set of real leaves, I move them to larger pots.   This will build bigger and more robust root growth which will get them off to a good start once they are put out into the garden.   Once the young plants are transferred to larger […]

It’s been about 6 weeks since the last update.   The summer has been super busy.   Too much travel and projects.   The good news is that all the summer veg have kicked into high gear.  Tomatoes were about 3-4 weeks later than usual.  Hopefully however, we’ll have great production all the way till […]

The beds have two rows of plants.  Each plant […]

Beds Ready for the Tomatoes

Tweet

Spring is coming a bit slow this year.  We are about 2 weeks behind “normal” years.   Not sure if this is a new normal as last year was very similar.  The beds have been prepared.   They have had a layer of homemade compost for a couple of months.  This has allowed the worms […]

Potting up Tomatoes

Tweet

The Tomato babies got their adult leaves so it was time to transplant them out to 4in. pots on March 10.

I then put them out into a new cold frame I built tucked up against the house to be more protected from frost.  However, right after, we had one day of very sunny weather.  I […]
