Here's an update on my vegetable garden.
My west back yard bed
My north backyard bed
My eggplant is doing well. I'm growing listada de gandia. I chose this variety because it's white with purple stripes. It's supposed to have a great flavor and it's just the right size for dinner.
My zucchini got munched by something, probably bunnies, but it is forming some new leaves. I hope that it will survive.
Most of my cucumbers look great.
However, my lemon cucumbers look terrible.
I planted green, purple and yellow bush beans. They all came up and are growing well.
My tomatoes have grown at least a couple of inches this week. Fred Limbaugh looks fantastic. I chose this variety because it's a pink beefsteak that tastes sweet and fruity.
These are my cheater celery. The celery that I started from seed didn't do well, so I bought a dozen celery seedlings from a nursery. This variety is self-blanching, so I don't have to worry about planting them in trenches.
My broccoli has finally taken off. The seedlings were puny, but they are filling out nicely. I chose Apollo because it produces a lot of side shoots. I don't like heads of broccoli much, but the side shoots are sweeter and more tender.
