Georgia Gardening Update 2 and 5 weeks

The title might be a little confusing - but allow me to explain a little.

When we started this little gardening endeavor, we had cleared out a small area in a flower bed and decided a few tomato plants would look nice there.  Three tomato plants, a japanese eggplant, a zucchini and a cantaloupe later....we knew we were ready to build the garden chronicled in a previous post.  So these plants are about 3 weeks ahead of the big garden and we anxiously await the, um....fruits of our labor.

Here's our first big whopper tomato haha!  This is the Amelia hybrid regular ol' red tomato.  Several other Lemon Boy tomatoes are growing also, but are sadly more difficult to photograph, since they are hidden behind the zucchini.  Coming in a close third is the German Queen heirloom with no discernible set fruit yet.  

Here's our first baby eggplant - Ichiban Egg eggplant, to be precise.  Can't tell you how excited I am!

Here are the "baby" peas, which in two weeks have grown to over 6" tall.  I can only attribute the copious amounts of rainfall over the past 2-3 weeks to their magnificent height!

Making their way into the garden today are spicy globe basil, onion chives, and curly leaf parsley, since I was craving some more herbs.

Check back soon for more pictures!
