|The Paul Robeson tomato plant has set fruit!|
|The pepper plants are beginning to blossom. The only ones that haven't formed any flowers are the Cayenne.|
|The pepper blossoms belong to this Hungarian Hot Wax plant. Notice the sprouted mushrooms at the base.|
|Even the eggplants are blossoming. Amazing!|
|The purple stems and flowers belong to this Bangladeshi Long eggplant. Can you see the pulled up mushrooms?|
|Look, tiny fuzzy zucchinis on the Black Beauty zucchini plant.|
|The Black Beauty zucchini plant isn't very large but it is forming lots of blossoms.|
The eggplants and peppers are blossoming as well, which is amazing to me because the seeds weren't even started until March this year. That means it has only been 2 months since the seeds sprouted. The leaves on the Bangladeshi Long eggplant are 8 inches long, 10 inches counting the stem. Since we had a giant shade tree cut down in the backyard last year, the garden now gets about 12 hours of full sun a day. I am thinking the amount of sunshine is making a huge difference in the growth of the plants, plus the soil was highly amended and mulched this year.
I still haven't finished planting the garden yet. The lettuce starts need to planted in the ground. The winter squash, melons, and patty pan squash all need to be seeded. Hopefully, I can get all that done on Tuesday.
