The Vegetable Garden – An Update

Our vegetable garden is thriving!  I can’t believe sometimes that we grew all these plants from seeds.  We have a couple of fails.  There’s the bok choy – which my mom pointed out were a similar vegetable but not exactly bok choy.  And there’s the watermelon – which is small but may yet thrive in the coming months.

Cucumber, on the other hand, is amazing!  We’ve got sooo many cucumbers growing on our plants.

 We have a couple of pots of herbs on our deck.

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE: Research your herbs before you plant them in pots.  I planted the Thyme and Tarragon together.  Obviously, from the photo, they do not make good bedfellows!  The Tarragon’s space has been invaded by the Thyme.  They started out the same size.  I’m going to have to move it to its own individual pot and hope it survives the stress. 

This is the grapevine we're training to grow over our deck for shade.  We have two of these, actually.

These are the eggplants we're growing on the deck.  We ran out of room in the garden!

Back to the veggie garden!

Our tomatoes just started flowering.  Can't wait for tomatoes!  See the image at the top of this page for how they looked as seedlings.

And that’s that!

Just a head’s up, I’m getting married in a little over a month, so don’t expect too many posts between now and then.  No worries though, we’ve got a LOT more planned for our sustainability projects.  Expect posting to return to a regular schedule come August!

I’ll be doing posts on individual plant care – for those plants of ours that do well.  How often to fertilize, what fertilizer to use, where to plant them, what the soil should be like, etc.
