Hello everyone! A lot has changed since the last time I posted about my garden. We have since moved and we now have a larger yard with space for an in ground garden! Here are a few pics of everything, some old and some new!
The tomatoes have outgrown their supports! I finally harvested a few tomatoes just before July 4th! I’ve had a few problems with worms, but I have been able to hold them off with a diluted dish soap spray. I noticed after moving that some of the flowers were dried up, I believe because of the change in heat and moisture levels from the move. It is still producing though!
The mint has really taken off and grown a lot over the past few weeks!
The onions are harvested! Yummy yummy!
I am trying for a pineapple! I know I will only get one each year, but how many people can say they have a home-grown pineapple to eat! I thought I lost it for a second, but nature surprised me, as always, and it is surviving so far.
I planted some sunflowers and they are getting a little height on them now. I can’t wait to see the flowers!
Ta da! A new compost bin! While I would normally try to pile it up in the corner of the yard or recycle something else to use as a container, we have dogs and they tend to love to scavenge for the kitchen scraps!! So for peace of mind, this works!
My husband said he wanted lemons, limes and oranges! Therefore, I jumped on the idea! Here they are, along with two blueberry bushes. I would have liked to plant them in the ground, but in case we move again in the next couple of years I can at least try to keep them! I have to do some reading up on how to care for them!
And this is our future in-ground garden space! While we didn’t move in time to have a spring garden, I hope to have it ready for a fall garden! As you can tell, the grass needs to be removed, tilled, etc. I will keep you updated!!
Have a great day in your garden,
