This past week I noticed so many of my plants are now fruiting! I’ve shared some pictures in my Sanctuary Gardener updates the past two weeks, but there were too many “firsts” this week to share in yesterday’s update. It’s nice to start seeing the fruits of my labor. 🙂
This is the first time I’ve grown pear tomatoes. I like how they’re shaped.
I have fruit on one of my Amish paste tomatoes now.
I didn’t get pictures of the Wisconsin and Black Krim tomatoes because they are JUST starting to fruit and the tomatoes are still small, but I did get pictures of these beauties.
Look at how many tomatoes are on just one of my Cherokee Purple plants!
You can tell these babies are heirlooms. Look at those crinkles – to hold in all that tasty goodness!
This is the first time I’ve grown Rutgers tomatoes.
I received a package of this seed as a free gift with an order from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, and they were so good, this is my third year planting them.
I find it interesting to look at the different shape of all my tomatoes. Peppers have some intriguing shapes, as well.
My mini red bell peppers are flowering but no fruit yet. However, my regular red bell peppers are fruiting. Here’s the biggest one so far.
My green bell peppers are just starting to fruit.
This is the first time I’ve grown this variety, and I am fascinated at seeing these peppers growing upright.
I love to stuff these with chicken.
I love to batter and fry these babies!
These add a nice flavor to my hot pepper relish and pepper jam.
I love the striped leaves on this one, and the peppers are great in chili.
Last year someone gave me seeds that were supposed to be a mini sweet red pepper. These were anything but sweet! Hot and tasty, they have defied my ability to identify them. So, I call them my mystery hot peppers. This is a plant I grew from seed I saved last year.
My cantaloupe plants have dozens of flowers but no fruit yet. Walking through the garden this weekend, I was surprised to find two honeydew melons growing!
I also found my first white watermelon this weekend, too. The hand pollination I did last week worked.
If you’re wondering what’s going on with my squash since I started hand pollinating, come back on Thursday for an update.
What’s fruiting in your garden?
