My Bountiful Garden

This is just some of the harvest. It keeps on coming. The tomato is a Burpee Big Boy Hybrid.
All veggies started from seed. The peppers are sweet from Burpee. So far, I have put up 12 pint jars of sweet pickles, 12 jars of dill, and three gallon freezer bags of tomatoes.
There was a blight that struck around here, which devastated much of the tomato crop. I had about 6 tomatoes with a white shoulder, appeared as if etched in mold. Those tomatoes were exposed more then the others. I had clipped away some foliage, to exposed them to the sun. The others were protected by dense leaf cover. A few went to the giant slugs.
The ladder experiment worked quite well, placing it over the cucumbers kept them trailing up.


  1. Looks like you had a great year for your vegetables--congratulations!

  2. I love it! Very creative!That's actually really cool.
