I finally transplanted all of the pepper and basil seedlings into our planter boxes this past weekend and sowed a row of spring onions as well. The tomato cage is over the spring onions to discourage certain cats from using our planter box as a litter box.
The Golden Jubilee and Roma tomato plants are getting big, and there are several green tomatoes forming!
The Sweet 100 is getting ginormous!
Yesterday I spotted our first ripening cherry tomatoes:
And the rogue butternut squash are thriving as well. There are at least two tiny squash that have formed:
Finally, I planted one of our rogue Sweet 100 seedlings in the front yard planter box. We’ll see how it goes.

As beginning gardeners, our one-time expenses this season are getting pretty high. I’m interested to see how our expenses will compare next season.
Now, I need to figure out how I’m going to keep track of our production!
