Last time, I was ready to pull our our tomato plant because it had fallen over, and I couldn’t get it to stand up again. However, Facebook readers urged me to try to prop it up. My son and I did finally get it half propped up, but most of the tomatoes I could harvest were split and nasty, so this weekend, I decided enough was enough. My son and I stripped all of the green tomatoes off (all 317 of them!) and then embarked on a 10 minute battle to get the tomato plant untangled from the tomato cage so we could use it next year. I have to say, we were miserable failures at growing zucchini and cucumbers, but our cherry tomato plant rocked this year! I am definitely planting one of those next year, if not two.
We planted about 14 pea plants for our fall garden, and I am impressed by their growth so far. I also planted bok choy, and about half of what I planted has come up. The lettuce I planted in August never took, so after we pulled up the tomato plant, we planted lettuce seeds. We will see if they come up.
Zucchini: 0 (all plants were pulled up)
Green Peppers: 13
Red Peppers: 2
Hot Peppers: 31
Cucumbers: 0 (all plants were pulled up)
Tomatoes: 465 (including the 317 green ones that I am hoping will all ripen)
Green Pepper: 15
Red Pepper: 11
Hot Peppers: 60
