I am on my way back out, but wanted to share what was going on with our garden!
We have one little white peach tree (on the left), moved last year from right beside the house, and I do mean, RIGHT up against the house. We added three apple trees last year, the picture on the right being one of those three. Note: we need to learn more about fruit trees.
I forgot to snap them, but we also have 6 blueberry plants can’t decide are making it or not. We need to read up on berries, too, huh?
I have a few red bell pepper plants waiting for a home (we need a tiller!!), as well as cilantro and parsley. I am also going to start some seed……sometime. Cilantro is a MUST at this house!
Tomatoes! Romas, grapes, Mortgage Lifters, and Cherokee Purples! I think we only put out 15 plants last year (of course, if I had kept a garden journal, I could tell you exactly how many. tsk,tsk,tsk) but this year? 44 plants. I love it.
To the right are our two looong rows of green beans. We WILL stake these up better this year. We will. You might notice how dense these guys are in spots. This, friends, is the evidence of a 2-year old and her father planting green beans. And I love it.
You can’t tell it, but there are a few potato plants growing. We know nothing of potato growing, and I guess it shows? Papa planted a bunch, but we have 8 or so that are making it. I can’t figure out how to circle stuff in a picture, so just imagine 8 irregularly space leaf-mulch piles with green leaves coming out. :)
MG has her own plot at the end of our family garden, beside the black walnuts. She LOVES the Lovejoy book, Roots, Shoot, Buckets and Boots (I do, too!) and wants to plant lemon balm, fennel, and a whole hosts of herbals. I love it.
Another plant we know nothing about growing: onions. And glory be, they are making it. Do I need to be covering these guys up with more soil? We have been told we can plant these pretty dense, so maybe next year, our 2 year old can plant them :) (of course, then she will be 3….wonder what that can mean, other than more gray hairs?)
How does your garden grow?
