Spring Vegetable Harvest Underway

Category: General – Robert – 4:12 pm

In the past week we have been picking beans and the first tomatoes in my Houston vegetable garden.  I am very pleased with the Romano beans—they have a nice, rich flavor and heavy production.  So far the cherry and plum tomatoes (Sweet Treat and Orange Paruche) are ripening.  The slicer varieties are still a week or more away. 

We are finishing up the beets, Swiss chard, carrots and sugar snap peas.  I started okra in pint pots a couple of weeks ago and transplanted them today.  Planted the old standby Clemson Spineless and well as Flowerbed, Green Fingers and Annie Oakley.  I have not tried the last two before.

All three varieties of eggplants have small fruit.
