This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

giant belgium tomatoes

giant belgium tomato

A real prize! Two Giant Belgium tomatoes are ripe on the vine. Looks like this plant will only produce 3 or 4 fruits this year. They are bigger than last year's and very meaty and sweet.

Great, am trying to source the Kalabash over here. Looked at Johnny's seeds terrific and informative website but the import details although necessary I know, but mind blowing. I will look this Giant Belgium up too in UK suppliers.

On the moon front, if you have a clear sky there this evening you are in for a treat, the moon rose over my garden around an hour ago (9.10 p.m.)and although waning it is bright in a star filled sky, one of the best star filled skies this Summer.

Your Giant Belgium are beautiful. Doesn't look like the late blight did much damage?

Salix, The blight hasn't found this one Giant Belgium plant yet. It did kill a couple others early this year.

Thanks for the Meme award. I'll do a revealing post soon.
