Er... I meant 'cold' not 'clod' :)

I dont quite remember. It was spring and I planted some more right before monsoon season, which starts the first week of July. We have a long planting season since we dont get much cold weather. Maybe about a months worth. The biggest difficulty of course is watering enough. Its been a harsh summer going close to 120F! :( Some of my seeds were bought and I still have same issues with them.

Rain season is FINALLY here! Some flowers are popping up :D

Great news! Where abouts do you live? It's always rainy season here in Wales...

Never mind, your profile says Texas... Sounds like a challenging place to grow anything! Are you buying seeds which are recommended for your climatic conditions?

Comment by Dara on August 24, 2013 at 11:54am
actually my profile says Tucson, AZ. Its cold in Texas compared to here,.lol. It pretty much only rains from beginning of July till the beginning of September. And they are some powerful thunderstorms too. Ill put some picks up on my profile. This year hasnt been raining much though until the last couple of weeks.

Hi Veggie Growers. My first ever homegrown tomato is ripening.. excited! There are about 15 on the plant altogether at the moment. I also have a small herb & veggie patch.. starting slowly.

Looking good! Bet you can't wait to taste them. What variety are you growing? And what are you growing in your veg patch?

I've grown my own toms for the first time ever this year as well... I've struggled with blossom end rot though so, despite lots of fruit forming, I've not had as much fruit as there could have been :(

Comment by Allissa on September 5, 2013 at 7:52pm

Hi Sam. This probably sounds terrible but I actually have no idea what variety they are. Bought a seedling at a farmers market and didn't even ask.. oops. I put it in a hanging basket, hanging from a backyard tree in full sun. Seems to like it there but I will have to keep up the water, especially with summer coming soon in Oz. The leaves have started lightening in color in the last few weeks.. any recommendations for what I should feed it? Sorry to hear about the difficulties with yours.

I'm also growing celery, shallots, garlic chives, rosemary, mint, oregano, sage and basil. Once I have some ripe tommies I can't wait to make bruschetta with the basil! I've recently bought a mulberry tree (small but already with fruit) and there's also a huge mango tree plus a small orange tree that were on the block when I arrived, so I'm looking forwards to lots of mangos this summer.

Love the idea of this group, thanks for having me.
