Planted Vegetable Patch May 17, 2017

This is a thin "oriental" version of an eggplant that should produce a sweet crop (if one plant can be considered a crop).

Cucumber, Tomato, Eggplant, Basil 

Basil and two Cucumber Plants
The cucumber plants came with roots entwined.  If I pull them apart both roots will tear away leaving two plants with no roots.  I'm supposed to cut away the weaker plant as they grow.  Which one?  Maybe I can keep both. 

The tomato plant is a bit floppy because I planted a large part of the stem horizontally as recommended and Lynette said it will be in shock for a while until it gets used to its new home. I hope so.

I checked on the tomato plant a few hours later and it's starting to straighten out.  I'll take a photo in a day or so to let you know how it's doing. :)


  1. Looks good! It'll be fun when they start to grow really big.

  2. I am certain both cucumber plants will thrive. They are hardy. You will be making a good salad when your harvest comes in.

  3. Your vegetable and fruit patch is looking good. (Tomatoes are a fruit)
    Most plants suffer from 'stress' when planted but recover well.
    Happy growing there.

  4. It's exciting to set out new plants and see them take hold after a couple of days.

  5. ... and I just love Cucumber, Tomato, Eggplant, and Basil!
    Happy growing.

    All the best Jan
