What’s New in the Gardens?
The tomatoes are so thick with blossoms and fruit this year, the tomato plants are requiring extra stakes. Good news for my salads and spaghetti sauce.
“Full Moon” – the ‘great white’ of pumpkins, though not really white. More pastel orange. It can grow 25-50 pounds. This pumpkin’s photograph was taken on the day of the full moon – think that makes it a lucky pumpkin?
The fruit of the “Sweet Beauty” is sweet and crisp. Perfect for dessert any night.
I went to our University’s Annual Field Days at their Research Gardens. There they show off all the produce of their test gardens and even provide free samples – the corn and salsa and raspberries were really perfect. Even got to vote on favorites, so maybe the tomato I loved will be in seed packets and at the garden centers in a year or two.
