Urban Vegetable Garden Series - Part III: Plant Puberty?!!

My babies are growing up so fast!! I've moved the more delicate ones outside to join their tomato friends. It looks like the tomatoes and basil have hit plant puberty as they have started to flower.

Apparently this means that I should trim the flowers on the basil to prevent woodiness of the stem and to start staking and prune the tomatoes because fruit is coming soon!!

The jalepenos are looking healthy but no signs of coming of age yet. I've also started some green beans but those have yet to emerge from the soil so a picture of dirt didn't really seem too exciting.

I'm so proud of my babies and jealous that they get to hang out on my patio all day while I'm at work.
