Re: my organic garden

Nice garden and beautiful veggies. Did you start your tomatoes from seed? I also have the Opalka tomato and seems to doing quite well. The fruit is huge for a paste type. However, it took quite awhile to get my head around the fact that the plant is very limp. I was worried that something was wrong with them when they were seedlings. I've spent quite a bit of time pruning them to keep the foliage off the ground to prevent a disease and critter path.

Re: my organic garden

Thanks for stopping by lexusnexus. I started the Chadwick cherry and large red tomatoes from seed. The opalka, boxcar willie, costoluto, and howard german tomatoes were all bought from chiliplants.com I also got the Carolina reaper and Hungarian wax pepper plants there. All other plants were started from seed.
I have also been pruning like crazy trying to keep the tomato plants from taking over the garden. My boxcar willie is doing the worst of them all because of all the recent rain.

Re: my organic garden

Looks great. Amazing what the right mix of ingredients make. Your soil mix is basically Mel's mix plus some extra nutrients. I am jealous. I don't see any weeds.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: my organic garden

My first Carolina Reaper. It has an odd shape for a reaper but the others look like they should. I was told that sometimes the early reapers show weird phenos like this. I am sure its just as hot as any other reaper though. I'm slowly working up the nerve to eat it.

As close as I got so far...This thing looks like lava
