Karstopo I only bought 3 carmelo's this year also. Wish I had bought maybe 2 more. I cut back on the tomatoes this year and only have 8 plants. Last year I pulled up plants because I could not give tomatoes away. This year people are going nuts over seeds and plants. Thanks for mentioning the squash. I also forgot and have a good place to plant some seeds. My seeds are from last year but should do. Going to do that now while I wait for my new freezer to arrive.

I’m going to end up, knock on wood, with more fresh tomatoes than I can use. Thinking about different ways to preserve the excess.

What do y’all do with the surplus harvest besides give it away?

Can it! We do probably 30 quart jars a year of tomatoes. Use it in soups, all kinds of dishes. Keeps really well. Better, by far than the canned stuff they sell in stores.

Good idea. I’ve got some mason and weck jars, but have never canned tomatoes. I’ll look for what’s the best way to can tomatoes on the web. Most of my tomatoes are slicer types, but I guess they can be canned too.

Spaghetti squash really took off in this raised bed. Biggest of several fruit.
Still blooming and setting more.


Getting a reasonable amount of yellow squash now, paint brush pollination does work.




Bell peppers are huge this year.


Getting a few tomatoes ripening and some big ones in the works


Good season, giving the garden a lot of attention and care and it seems to be paying off. Learning on the job, but all these master gardeners here help shorten the curve.

Very nice. When will you pick the Spaghetti squash? Mine hasn't even started blooming yet, but I have some family members eagerly awaiting some.

I agree on the bell peppers...huge this year...and the jalapenos are also very large this year for some reason.

Not really sure on the spaghetti squash will be ready. I believe it’s listed as 95 days, This one was up and growing by mid March. From what I’ve read, when the skin turns golden yellow and the rind is too hard to scrap with a finger nail.

I’m going to make a guess and say the first week in June.

Decided to pick a couple of bell peppers for stuffed peppers tonight. I don’t think I’ll be able to eat more than one. 11.3 ounces and the other one is 9.3. Crusader is the variety, new one for me.

Those are beauties...and have me curious about weighing mine.

It is a great year for peppers so far...but with the temps getting in the upper 90s I expect mine will slow production somewhat. Funny thing I never used to like bell peppers and would avoid them until I started growing them. Now stuffed bell pepper is one of my favorites. You just can't beat home grown produce.
