So, I’m kind of proud of my raised bed/container garden this summer! I’ve never really had a green thumb…but it’s doing pretty good this summer! I started a few things from seed…they aren’t growing as fast as the plants I purchased, but the summer is young and I still have hope for them! ;)
In my raised bed I have 2 Romano tomatoes and 2 fireball tomatoes (from seed…blooms, no tomatoes yet), 1 beefsteak tomatoes (purchased for $2.50 at Harris Teeter…huge, covered in tomatoes…some will be ready to pick soon), 1 california golden bell pepper (has small peppers, purchased @ the farmers mkt $3), 1 orange bell pepper (has small peppers, purchased from Walmart $2.98), 2 Rolo bell peppers and 1 jalapeño pepper (started from seed, no blooms yet), 1 yellow pepper (Bonnie, Walmart, $2.98 no blooms yet), 13 sweet onions (there were a couple more, but my mom ate them!), 1 black beauty eggplant (from seed, no blooms yet), 1 ichiban eggplant ($4.98, Walmart, Bonnie ….has a baby eggplant!), 1 Boston pickling cucumber (Bonnie, $2.98, Walmart …covered in tiny cucs)
So, that’s all for now…want to plant some carrots, green beans and zucchini…
First week of Spring and we have been in the 80’s all week…weird weather! Tonight, I noticed there are already lightning bugs in our backyard —-> in MARCH!!!
Is it me, or are our seasons all out of whack?!?
My mom and I spent the day @ Discovery Place…we went to see the Mummies of the World Exhibit.
So, Thursday I planted some lettuce plants and spinach seeds…going to plant some garlic today!
Also, started seeds for summer raised garden…first time with the seeds, guess we will see how it goes! ;)
…ocean withdrawal syndrome. If I don’t get to go to the beach soon I may…hell, I don’t know what I may do…LOL…but I really, really need a trip there!
