View Full Version : Good results so far?

Curious as to how everyone's herb and veggie gardens have done this year. Was there a veggie that's been giving you higher than expected yields this season?

For me, I was very pleased (as always) with my herb production. Seems like my sage really exploded this year.

My veggie garden.... I'd have to say so/so. Got what I expected from my bush beans - i had to replant about half of those (a sneaky rabbit got in there). Redskin potatoes did pretty well. Was hoping for more tomatoes, but still did pretty well. Still got a lot of green ones on there that are about to turn.

so, how's it going so far?..... :)

Our family's been growing some standard red tomatoes in our small backyard garden. We live in California, so the weather has been very amenable to growing them. I just started growing my own vegetables, and tomatoes were the easiest choice. Gonna make some ceviche with them soon, before the summer's up!

Good luck with your garden.

I have been impressed with the production level of my Cherokee Purple tomatoes. Some descriptions list them as "stingy producers" but we've pulled nearly 11 pounds so far and have a lot more green out there.

Garlic was good but only my first year with it.

Basil produced a gallon of pesto from 9 plants.

Potato-tower, sweet potatoes, and Butternut Squash still in the garden.
