Garden 2009: Update

The Okra plants are as tall as I am! We only have 2 which has been great but I think next year I would want 4. We ate some fresh okra the other night and it was so worth it!
I also learned to pick it while it is about 4 or so inches long because if you let it get 7 or 8 inches long it is too tough to eat! We wasted alot of good okra that way!
My tomatoes are struggling! I didn't thin them out like I should have AND i didnt stake them in time so they are all over the place. I have only had 3 ripe tomatoes this whole summer and that was this week! Hopefully all those green ones will ripen! Does anyone know if "Fried Green Tomatoes" are actually a special breed or just unripe tomatoes?
Pumpkins! Pumpkins! Pumpkins! They are taking OVER! Literally. They grow so fast and crazy but hopefully I will grown enough for all my Nashville friends ...
Does anyone know how long it takes for Pumpkins to grow?

Fried green tomatoes are just the unripened regular tomatoes. YUM-YUM!

Just unripe tomatoes....What does Grizas mean???

Did you plant these pumpkins or are they random in your compost? If so they may be under a mistaken identity...squash. That is what we eventually found out was in our compost after thinking they were watermelons. Leaves are very similar.

I share your displeasure in your tomatoes, my tomatoes aren't ripe either, got a few grape ones this week but not much else! I had big plans for them! Keeping my fingers crossed!
