This is an Italian heirloom called Tomande. I got these seeds for like 50 cents as part of a bonus for spending X number of dollars on a seed order. I'd have never bought them otherwise. I am really glad I did! They were the first to flower, first to set, and not a single one of them has had any sign of blossom end rot. The other varieties are coming along pretty nicely as well.
It's not only tomatoes that are thick over here. Yup. You guessed it. Eggplants homie.
These are fairy tale hybrids. So many fruits in this shot even Lady Gaga had to look.
Those of you that have been following my blog for a while may remember a melon trellis I built a few months back. I'm happy to say that it seems to be a success!
Watermelons and cantaloupes are doin their thang. There's even a couple of melons on the vine!
Check out this baby. I named her Melon Keller. She can't see or hear, she just grows man. Hopefully I can be her Anne Sullivan. As for the cantaloupes - nothing. Let's just say that if the cantaloupe plants were teenage girls there wouldn't exactly be a line of boys beating down their door to get a prom date. Maybe I should start playing Kesha songs in the garden.
Remember, while you enjoy this holiday, what it stands for. Happy Memorial Day!
