Another Wednesday is upon us and my garden has shown growth since last time I shared it with you.
The pepper plants all have little mini peppers on them and I'm anxiously awaiting the change of colours and being able to actually eat them.
Despite the sad start to the carrots, they seem to be doing okay now. Although seeing this picture reminds me that I need to thin them again, before they get too big.
Our beans are a little behind since the first planting all died and we had to replant the entire two rows. But they are all in bloom so hopefully that means we will soon be eating fresh beans!
Our tomato plants are still as big as ever and beginning to fall over again. Seriously, I'm not sure how to contain them all and keep them under control. Does anyone have any tomato plant tips? Each year they turn into monsters! But the good news, the green tomatoes are starting to turn pinkish which means, fresh tomatoes soon. Which is always a happy thought.
The sad mistake we made with our garden this year is in regards to our zucchini and cucumber plants. We wanted them near the edge of the garden so they had room to branch out and grow, but we didn't think their placement through very well. They are on the wrong side of the tomatoes and consequently don't get enough sun. The poor things are stretching upwards in search of some heat rays. Oh well, lesson learned. Next year will be better.
So that is this week's update on my garden. If you have a garden, how is it doing? Are you eating much from it? I'm impatiently waiting for the first beans and tomatoes.
