If you were to tiptoe out into my garden early in the morning you might well over hear a conversation among the other vegetables "You know ... she likes the tomatoes best." Well there ARE other things in this garden besides tomatoes.
So first there are the eggplant. They had a devil of a time setting fruit. I fed them some calcium and that (or maybe just time itself) seemed to set them straight. But only one of the three plants had adequate sun ... shaded as they were by ... you guessed it, the tomatoes.
My basil has done better than EVER this year. Usually by mid-August it is woody and bitter. It is still lush and supple. I wonder if planting it next to a row of green beans helped act as a windbreak. And then there are the winter squash. Say hello to the Winter Squash Class of 2007. On the top stair are two Candy Roasters and two Winter Luxury Pumpkins. And on the bottom stair are supposed to be BABY Blue Hubbards except that one of them didn't know he was a baby. Wish I had planted some Butternuts.
