Kelly’s Vegetable Garden July 9, 2010 – Update 3 / Harvest 1

Well, I figured it was time to do an update / harvest video. It’s July, 9, 2010 at about 8:00pm and I was harvesting tomatoes when I decided to do an update. As you can see, I am getting a ton of tomatoes and squash. The cucumbers and peppers are finally moving along and I should be harvesting them soon as well. Also, I have cantaloupe starting to form and hopefully my plan of setting them on planks across the wire cage will work…. We’ll see… All in all, it has been a great growing season so far and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. I still plan on doing so hydroponic garden but I decided to wait until the end of the season to do that. I’m also going to put in a greenhouse so with any luck I will be growing things throughout the year. Here in Napa Valley the growing season is very long and I’m going to try to make it a year around thing. I plan on recording the process of building the hydroponic system that I have designed as well as the assembly of the greenhouse so I will keep you posted on that. I hope everyone enjoys these videos and if anyone has any suggestions, questions or comments, don’t hesitate to post them. Take care everyone and happy gardening!!

      The quickest way I know to use up those little grape and cherry tomatoes is to either munch on them like grapes, blend them into soup or spaghetti sauce, or toss them in a food processor with a clove of garlic, some lime juice, cilantro, green onion, and maybe a chunk of pepper if you like, then whip it all together as salsa! Set a bowl of corn chips next to that, and it won’t last long, lol.

      @flyguy1725 Yeah, It’s about 15 feet and still growing up!! I can’t believe it. I actually harvested some more today and my wife is busy making some salsa and tomato sauce for spaghetti. It’s going to be soooo good! Thanks for you comments… I’ll try to update more often.

    5. bobokel2000 Says:

      @GardenCalifornia You are so right… I’m eating them like grapes right now. I love just eating them like that or with some cottage cheese… mmm. Also, my wire is making salsa right now…. should be great.

      @wmkk808 Yeah, sorry I haven’t posted in a while… I have just been hammered at work. By the time I can record, it’s too dark. As a matter of fact, it was almost too dark when I recorded this one. Everything is really taking off right now especially the tomato’s and the two tall ones are still towering up. I’m just going to let them go and see how tall they get… kinda of a science project. Talk to you soon.

      Anything goin this year?

    14. bobokel2000 Says:

      Hello everyone…. Yes, I have been busy growing everything from seed this year. I started in February and have been transferring everything into bigger and bigger pots waiting for the soil temperature to get high enough to plant. It has been a cool spring in Napa and the overnight temps have been still dipping into the high 30’s and low 40’s. About two weeks ago, I transferred all my plants into my hoop house to start hardening them up before they go into the ground. First video on Saturday
