My Garden Life {Week 3}


Time for another garden update and I'm happy to report that I'm finally seeing some color changes after a summer of green, green, and more green! For those who asked about the striped tomatoes that look like they are going to be huge if they keep growing - I have no idea what they are. They were among the plants that our friend gave us and I didn't catch the name. I like to call them, tomatoes-of-unknown-origin-that-look-like-they'll-be-huge. But I'm pretty sure that's not the scientific name. For more garden photos, visit No Ordinary Homestead for the Garden Life link-up this Friday and check out what's growing this summer.

I popped out one morning and was taken aback by the number of tomatoes that seemed to appear overnight!

Bell peppers to the left, Big Bertha to the right (and it's getting bigger all the time!)

These are the peppers I started from seed - so excited to see them growing!

Just to clarify, these are NOT pumpkins, they are decorative (i.e. small) gourds. I don't think they'll get much bigger than this - perfect for indoor decoration this fall!

  1. Those gourds look very cool. I'll have to keep that in mind for next year.

  4. Ha! We have similar varieties of tomatoes... my MIL gave us some of her mixed heirloom seeds so neither of us knows what we planted. We'll be playing 'name that tomato' as well. Yours look healthy and happy!
