Well Mother Nature sure hasn’t really been cooperation since I planted my little garden. The cool, dreary, rainy weather has been less-than-ideal for growing a garden. These little plants and seeds of mine need some sun!!! Thankfully the forecast for this week speaks of sunny skies and warm, or perhaps I should say HOT temperatures! If the weather people are actually right for a change, it looks like this week we might have summer! 🙂
Needless to say, you will see in the following pictures that the growing this past week was at a minimum. The only things that seemed to do well was my patio planters and the lettuce! We have little itty bitty baby lettuce!! 😉
Patio planters (and Boo):
Hoping for better weather this coming weekend so I can attack the patio with the power washer.
I planted some Spearamint (actually dug it up from the garden and put it in a pot after hearing how much it spreads!):
I also gave up hunting for edemame seeds and ended up planting some grape tomatoes in this pot (my mom had extra plants so why not?):
Pansies and snap dragons… the snap dragons seemed to do really well this past week. I can’t wait for them to flower as I got a mixed pack and am not sure what colours they will be.
The Kale and Bean section…still no sign of beans yet!:
Tomato and herb section…the basil is doing great!:
Cucumber section…no sign of any green onions yet:
The garlic chives seem bigger!:
I think the Brussels Sprouts are bigger too! No sign of leeks yet… but have a parsley now!:
And we actually have some grass!!!
This is what it looked like 3 weeks ago:
Things are coming along! Slowly but surely our garden/yard is getting there! 🙂
