A Look Into Our 2018 Winter Garden - Easy Growing Ep. 19

With the start of 2018, our winter garden is off to a great start! Bell peppers are nearly ready to harvest, tomatoes are growing, green beans and a variety of other plants are starting to produce as well. Since we're located in south Florida, winter is an ideal time of year to grow a garden since it's not too hot. We'll keep you updated as more plants continue to grow and we plant in the recently cleared section of the Garden In Minutes raised garden!

 

A Closer Look at Some of the Specific Plants

Blue Cream Heirloom Grape Tomatoes

One of our favorite heirlooms to grow. It has a yellow/blue flesh and is deliciously sweet. Eat them alone or add them to a salad!

Marglobe Tomatoes

(The brown area you see is from the tomato growing against a stake we used to prop the plant. If this happens to a tomato of yours, simply cut the area out after harvest)

Marglobe Tomato 

This varietal is so perfectly round it can almost be confused for an apple.

More Marglobe Tomatoes

You may have noticed we've repeated this type a few times. That's because Marglobe Tomato plants are a heavy producer. A single plant can produce upwards of 50lbs of tomatoes in two months!
