Since my last photos http://joannsfoodbites.com/culinary-garden/garden-planted/ I have planted additional crops; jalapeno peppers, Yum-Yum orange bell peppers, Italian oregano, Valentino basil, and Crimson Sweet water melon. I will keep you updated on those items.
Contains (1) Zephyr Squash
(1) Crooked Neck Squash
Blue pots contain:
(1) Sugary Tomato (aka Super Sweet)
(1) German Johnson Tomato
I have never had either of these two varieties. The best I can figure, the “sugary tomato” is a type of cherry, hybrid red tomato that will have a very sweet flavor. It is an indeterminate plant.
The German Johnson is a pink-red heirloom varietal that will be low yield but large fruit. it is also an indeterminate plant.
Determinate – once the tomato plant starts producing fruit, it will stop growing.
Indeterminate – Plants will keep growing and producing new blossoms even after initial fruit set. Harvest may last for several months.
Because I am growing all these vegetables and herbs completely organic, I have consulted my husband, Doug, a professional horticulturist, for what would be the best solution destroying the tiny aphids eating on my pepper plants? He recommends a tablespoon of dish washing liquid, to approximately half a gallon of water, then lightly spraying the plant and the surrounding soil. I will keep you posted on the results.
