Tomato Leaf Removal
The cucumbers are up, but the germination was poor (about 50%) so I have planted replacement seeds where they did not sprout the first time. I am not sure why we have had such poor germination on some of the brand new seeds we purchased this year. We have a larger in-ground garden nearby and there were two whole packages of brand new corn seed that did not come up at all, while a section we planted in 5 year old seed had almost all of them come up.
Like I said in the video I would be harvesting some of the veggies. This is the first tomato harvest of the year. I picked 6.78lb of tomatoes. There were 21 large tomatoes and 10 of the black cherry tomatoes as well. There are a few more that are about ready so there will be more soon.
I also pulled 11 carrots for 1.05lbs. Most were straight, but there were two that had forked.
I got a few green beans for .084lb
I trimmed the basil and got a very large harvest for only four plants, .38lb. I took it home and made two cups of pesto which is very good.
