Grow


I have been wanting to grow a little vegetable garden for a few years now.
I have grown herbs in the past but that's about it.
The nice about vegetable gardening in Florida is that you can pretty much garden year round.

I figured I would start out with tomatoes, bell peppers and cucumbers and see how that went,
So far, so good.
Although I did plant too many cucumbers and I had to rip two out today- I didn't realize how big the vines got

My crazy cucumbers- I am trying to encourage them to climb but some are being more responsive than others.

Better Boy Tomatoes- these have been doing really well. They are probably 3 to 4 inches around now.

Bell Peppers- This photo is from last week, if you can spy the little green pepper in this photo, it is about triple that size now

These cherry tomatoes are from a balcony basket that I bought because it was on sale. I am really happy with the purchase, I have gotten a least 30 tomatoes from this plant so far. They are delicious in salads or even on their own with a little bit of salt and pepper.

Have you guys out there ever gardened? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
