I have finished harvesting my first planting of lettuce. It actually looks kind of sad now. It will sure taste good though. I am hoping it will grow back. I guess I will just wait and see. I planted a second pot of lettuce today so I will have more in a short few weeks.
The rest of my plants have taken off a little more since my last post. My tomatoes finally have a tomato on them and other blooms starting. Jeez! They took long enough! Can you spot the tiny tomato starting?
My squash and zucchini also have many blooms!
My herbs are getting bigger too!
Lastly, my green onions are looking good! Almost ready to use. =)
It has been almost 2 weeks since I have given a garden update. In that time, my plants have really taken off! Continue reading Garden Update 7-15-14
Despite the flooding from the excess rain we have been having, my plants have been loving it. Since they are in containers on a table that sits on our deck, the rain has been blowing in on them and I have not had to water them. They are just flourishing. It makes me smile! =) Continue reading Garden Update 6-25-14
Since we have had such bad luck with our truck this year and could not get the mulch and dirt we wanted, I have resorted to container gardening. It is not my favorite method but I am hoping it will at least bring me some of the fruits and veggies that I was so looking forward to. Continue reading My Container Garden….Spring 2014
These were also planted on May 23rd and sprouted May 29th. They will need to be thinned out in a few more days to keep them growing strong. As you can tell, the wood chips have been pulled back to plant straight into the dirt. The wood chips that we received were not composted so we could not plant straight into them. Instead, the seeds were sown right into the dirt below and once they are a more mature and established plant, I will slowly back-fill them with the wood chips. The benefit of the wood chips is to keep the soil soft and moist and add nutrients.
