Our very 1st tomato from this season's crop.  A "Grape tomato" variety.  I usually post some of my garden crop, so Teresa asked why I hadn't posted a pic of this tomato. So here it is in all it's glory!   :D

When I saw the post, I had to see the tomato.

Then I saw the picture and thought you had a 1 gallon coffee cup!

Then read that it is a grape tomato!

The "cherry" & "grape" varities usually never make it into the house, as I eat them as I walk past the vine!

We have 3 plants in a large 15 gallon pot.  Sometimes we can pick almost a gallon at a picking.  Last year they kept on bearing a FULL crop all the way till frost!

I don't think I started a "2013" garden thread, so I'll just add to this one.  Been overwhelmed with jobs going on, so gardening took a back seat so to speak.  So far I lost my first planting (1/2 of total corn area) of corn due to my putting too strong a dose of herbicide, but the lower half wasn't sprayed with the strong dose, so in the pics you can see it is coming along nicely.  Upper side I replanted a few weeks later, and it is doing well this time around.  Broccoli is doing decent, but not my usual dinner plate size heads, but still larger than the grocer has.  Tomato's are starting to turn and the plants growing taller every day.  Green beans have also started blooming.  Just a few sweet bell pepper plants, which are doing great.  One Eggplant, one hill of zuchini, and past the tomato & peppers is where we just planted 3 hills of watermelon.  Last night we also put out 2 hills of cantaloupe at the end of the onions and brussel sprouts.

  The fence & gate keeps the large critters out, but doesn't stop the slinkers.

That sure is a nice looking garden you got this year Daniel. I hope it's very fruitful for you.

 Congrats on the tomato, did you guys split it?

 

Teresa got that in her salad.  First full size (if you can call it that) tomato is sitting on the counter.  Maybe 2 1/2" across, but bigger will come.....I hope!

Oh, and the yellow dust on the ground....that's the corn gluten meal I got from my feed mill.  Same stuff as in "Preen".  Late season is when weeds get away on me, so just put some down to give it a try.
