Garden Bounty ~ 7/9/13

Even though we’ve been inundated with rain the past couple of weeks, I’m harvesting oodles of tomatoes and peppers, cucumbers and raspberries. I had so many peppers of different kinds and colors, I made a pepper centerpiece out of them for the picture above. See this week’s bounty!

Sanctuary Spotlight: How to Grow Tomatillos

I never thought I would be growing tomatillos. Admittedly, it’s not an everyday kind of crop. Yet, because they’re great in guacamole and in salsa, both favorites of mine, I decided to try growing them. I planted them from seed end of January, along with my tomatoes and peppers; but, unfortunately, they didn’t survive the transplanting process. However, my local Lowes had tomatillo plants for sale, so I bought two and put them into one of my tomato beds. I am so glad I did. They are a beautiful plant with fruit that is awesome to watch grow. How to grow tomatillos!
