Garden update

Since I'm not organized enough to keep a garden calendar, I thought I would post some photos to remind me what I was growing when. The photos are from last week. I didn't include photos of the bell peppers or squash because they haven't sprouted yet. :(

Japanese cucumber

Swiss chard (I sowed some more, but they haven't come up yet). If you look closely to the left, you can see some green onion.

My new-to-me upside down planter. A friend was getting rid of his so I thought I would try it. I've got four tomato plants and one eggplant in it, probably too many, but I ended up with an extra plant and didn't know where to put it. We added that white board so hopefully the plant in the back will get some reflected sunlight.

Chinese long bean (string bean). These are my grandmother's seeds. Every year, my mom lets a few beans go to seed for the next year. And now I'm doing the same thing.

Wax beans. My first time growing them.

I have a couple more tomato plants that I didn't take pictures of. I want to plant beets and basil and that's it for this year.

You're so good and disciplined! I still have to weed before I can plant... I'd even inspired to do better, if I didn't have my bum knee... :P I'll look forward to seeing your awesome bumper crop in the summer!

Hip hip hooray! I love gardening! So far my lettuce, tomatoes and sugar snaps are doing very well... my pototes are even starting to sprout, but not much else yet. Only planted two weeks ago though, so I am not stressing yet!
Good luck on your bounty this year Arlyn!
