Giant Tomato Plant

The tomato plant in my container garden is doing great! It is getting so tall and full and I need to prune it back so it doesn't get out of control! It even has a few blooms! I can't wait to have fresh tomatoes! The peppers are not doing as well as the tomato, the bugs aren't being kind and I need to get something to help it soon! It does look like it will have blooms here soon though.

You may have noticed that the marigolds that were in with the tomato and peppers are gone. The bugs destroyed them! It was pretty sad, I woke up one morning shortly after planting them to find marigold sticks. Every leaf and petal had been eaten; I thought marigolds were suppose to keep the bugs away!

In other garden news, I bought some clearance flowers (I can't remember the name) and planted them in the other whiskey barrels. They are quite pretty and I wish I remembered what kind of flower they are. Oh, I was visiting my friends who adopted a tomato and two pepper seedlings. I am quite happy to report that they are much better plant parents than I am and the adopted plants are not dead (like mine), but looking quite healthy!

I bought some herb lavender too, but they are still in their tiny pots and I need to do some soil prep before they can truly move into the yard. (I may share their photos during the next garden update.) Happy Gardening!
