It’s amazing how quickly vegetables grow in one week.
There are still plenty of flowers on the tomato plants, but only one more tiny tomato. You can see the new tiny tomato on the bottom and my first tomato on the top – it’s gotten much bigger in a week!
And finally, my serranos. Some of them are quite big now, so I’m just waiting till they turn color to pick them. On another note, my serrano pepper plants were overrun with ants and aphids (I think). It was quite gross – lots of little bugs on the undersides of the leaves and ants crawling all over. I did some research and discovered that ants will “farm” aphids, so although ants themselves won’t plants, they will bring aphids to the plants, and aphids do eat the plants. So I bought some plant bug spray. Hopefully that will keep my poor pepper plant bug free and healthy. I’ll just have to wash everything more carefully before I eat them.
