Gardening Photos From Our Garden – May 2024

May was the month tomato and pepper plants moved outdoors. All plants are doing fine but the real summer is yet to arrive.

Generally speaking, all is well, and I have not experienced any adverse effects from moving the plants outdoors.

I did, of course, harden off the plants for a good week before moving them out permanently.

I have flowers on my tomato plants and fruits on several pepper plants. The hotter varieties, like ghost peppers, are slower to develop, and I see buds but still no flowers.

Cucumber plant ready to move outdoors

Time to move my cucumber plants outdoors.

I prefer starting cucumbers in pots indoors. One plant per pot, and then I move the entire content of the pot outdoors.

Works like a charm and I get a headstart on the cucumber growing season here i zone 7.

San Marzano tomatoes at the food market in Treviso

This was a holiday week for me, and the photo was taken at a food market in Treviso, Italy.

These are the very same San Marzano plum tomatoes I am growing.

And check out the beans; yummy.

Replanting my lavender grown from cuttings

I moved the lavender plants I started from cuttings to larger pots.

Check out the video I posted on YouTube if you also want to grow more lavender plants for less.

Or read the article about growing lavender from cuttings.

Starting a new batch of San Marzano plum tomato plants

Starting tomato plants late in the season is a great way to ensure you have a rich fall harvest.

At least, that is what I do.

Here are the first leaves from a newly started San Marzano tomato plant batch.
