Already picked 5 tomatoes. I put em in at the end of February. Bell peppers are producing too as well as chili peppers. The rain we've gotten this spring has really helped. I made another little bed so my daughter could plant some pumpkin seeds she got from the one we carved for Halloween. The pumpkin plants are going crazy!!
Good luck w/ your & your daughter's garden.

IMO..... if you can plant in the next week or 2, the plants should grow good if we get normal rain and we don't get 95 F temperature in June or July.

We are getting at the very end of the planting season for tomatoes. When you plant too late, the blossoms will fall off b/c they cannot handle the heat too well.... even the heat set varieties. I would say that if you are going to plant, plant within the next week and that would be the latest. I work for the LSU AgCenter.

I have not been home enough this year to even start mine. Sometimes, I think I should not even think about planting one anymore. Last year I had a good garden and was really looking forward to this year. Then work got crazy and well there you go. Missed another year. Thanks for posting ya'll gardens at least I get to see one on here.

By the way. There is no such thing as to many tomatoes. There is always someone out there willing to take them off your hands.

My tomato plants are huge and laying on the ground they are so heavy with tomatoes. Picked my first cucumber yesterday and picked a zucchini last week. Damn cucumbers and zucchini looks like a jungle back there. Egg plants are blooming canteloupes are blooming and so are bells and jalaps. Bout another week ima have to pick about 40 tomatoes.

Ive never found cayennes to be hot unless dried out and chopped, now tobasco peppers can carry heat, ive planted tobasco next to some jalapenos and it made that jalapeno plants peppers hotter than the others
