Here are some pictures of my first harvest! It's not much yet. Most of my tomatoes are still on the vine and green, and my bush beans are just starting to produce. My ground cherry has fruit but none of them are ripe either. So my first harvest consists of some basil and a couple of tomatoes. I actually have harvested some lemon balm now, which apparently I can use in herbal teas. I also have more basil to harvest. I'm drying the current batch but I think I'll try freezing the next batch.
These are the first two tomatoes of the season. They are Purple Bumblebee. It's a cherry variety. After this I got a couple of Violet Jaspers which look similar but are grape tomatoes. They taste alright, pretty sour but much better than anything in the grocery store.
Right now there's a Cherokee Purple that is starting to ripen on the vine. I am really looking forward to trying it. Many gardeners online love Cherokee Purples, and I hope it tastes good! I really like growing traditional Cherokee varieties too, since it's another link to my culture.
On a similar note, my Cherokee Sacred Eagle corn has tassels and silks!! I have been hand pollinating so I really really hope that I get some corn! I will be so happy if my experiment in growing corn in pots works.
