It’s been about 2 months since we planted our little backyard garden. I would love to say that it has flourished, but I would be lying. I think this is going to be a learning year and I will be happy if we get anything much out of it. I don’t know why I thought I would be good at gardening….I stink at keeping houseplants alive. I’m much better at animals. Don’t ever believe that if you can’t keep a plant alive that you shouldn’t have a pet….they are much different.
I do have a tomato that is already turning pink…so that is a good thing. And my cherry tomato started putting on little tomatoes over the weekend. So YAY!
We had some bird/varmit issues and had to put up a scarecrow. Just about all our carrot plants, all of our lettuce and spinach and a good bit of the radishes were damaged. L But we haven’t had any problems with that since putting up the scarecrow. I’ve thrown some miracle grow on it a couple of times and that has helped it out a lot as well.
I have added 4 pepper plants (green bell, fat n sassy bell, poblano, and banana). I wanted a jalapeño, but I couldn’t find one, so I put an acorn squash in its place. I have no idea if I like acorn squash but the nursery had a plant for $1, so I thought why not?
Anyway, here are some pictures of how our little garden is progressing….
