I can’t remember what number “Garden Update” I am on but I really wanted to share the mini bounty I picked from the garden yesterday morning along with a progress report on some of the other things I’m growing!
This is what was ready to be picked! Some little red potatoes, cherry tomatoes and some beets. The beets I might “pickle” for later!
Last week I trimmed back most of the excess leaves on the big tomato plants in the hopes all the tomatoes will ripen faster. It seems to be helping. I was so worried I was doing it wrong and I was just going to kill the plant!
I have my first baby green pepper! It’s about 2 inches across and growing.
And here are my watermelons. I was very specific about calling them watermelons… according to Dillon I can’t keep asking people to come check out my melons lol 😳
I only have 4 of them so far but considering they were just an experiment I am quite impressed with myself lol!
As you can see, black thumb notwithstanding, I am actually managing to grow some veggies for my family and I to eat!
I have already started planning my “Garden Expansion” for next year 😮
