I am enjoying the abundance of the plant!
The cantaloupes have been restrained after many lectures about leaving the peppers alone. We should have many of these dotting our fence soon. I will be doing an instructional vid on how to hang them once they get larger.Question #1: How long do I wait until I harvest the cabbage? I know it still has a ways to go. Also, once I remove the head, will another grow or is this a one time plant?Question #2: These Broccoli plants stand nearly 2.5 feet tall, but I don't see any fruit yet. How long before I see it?Question #3: This is actually the same as #2 but for my cauliflower, the two plants seem suspiciously alike....

I also learned a good tip from Dave at the Downtown Farm Stand here in Muncie. He suggested an excellent way of using my compost pile. I put some in a bucket and put water in it. Let it sit overnight or swirl it around really well, then use that water to water the garden with - perfect organic plant food!! Thanks Dave!
