Ed. Note: When your gardens start to get full of tomatoes, cucumbers, whatever you’re growing – send an email to [email protected] with Garden Haul in the title and please include the neighborhood where you grew it.


Above: “From our community garden in Petworth. The tomatoes are mostly Juliettes – a small Roma variety that is incredibly productive.”

Below: Capitol Hill “This is more of a halt than a haul, since we have to pluck the fruit prematurely to stimulate further tree growth, but I thought it was pretty cool that pomegranates can in fact grow in DC. By next year it should be large enough to support leaving them on the branch to full maturity.”

    I’m very impressed with the amount of the hall on the first pic, and the pomegranates on the bottom!

    • I Dont Get It

      I agree!

    Wow! Very impressive… And, nice to know that others can successfully keep plants alive until they produce food! My family will have to continue to be happy with what is available at the farmer’s market. :-)

    So happy to see those pomegranates! I’ve been thinking of getting a bonsai one.
