Veggie town

Yep, I still have my earthbox gardens going and so far so good once I got rid of some critters (caterpillars) on my tomato plant. I am now having a bumper crop of Roma tomatoes and one of my broccoli has finally sprouted a head. I can't wait. See it in the center? It's small but it's there.
I hope the weather stays cool. (it doesn't care for the heat) My friend Karen has already harvested some broccoli from her earthbox garden. I am so jealous.

Last night Jeff & I had a nice fresh, tasty salad with Romaine and spinach from the garden....ohhhh it was yumlicious. I had to plant some more pole bean seeds as we have gobbled up all of the beans, but my bell peppers are still growing like crazy.
We put the caging around the lettuce and spinach to keep the bunnies out. Not that I have anything against bunnies but I think they would make short work of my garden given the chance.

All too soon the hot weather will be here so I need to think ahead to hot weather crops. hmmmm......

Hi Darlee it's cool growing things now but just wait until I'm grouching about the heat come June. LOL

Yum yum! I've harvested two broccoli heads and have more coming. Your tomatoes look great! My grape tomatoes are still green.
