Happy Fourth everyone!
Just three weeks after planting tomatoes, eggplants and peppers in my new beds, I can confidently state that the growth is amazing. You can read about the transformation of useless shrubs into productive soil and see how small the veggie plants were by clicking here.
Not only are the plants tall, they’re burly. I have never had tomato stalks this thick. I’m a bit surprised by all this unbridled “phyto enthusiasm,” because everyone I talk to has been whining about all the rain and how it’s been messing up their tomato crops.
These are the eggplants and peppers. I have fed the plants just once, with seaweed emulsion. I figure they are getting plenty of nutrients from the soil, which is mostly compost.
So the experiment has been a rousing success thus far. I’ll keep you posted.
