Garden Update

I can’t remember what number “Garden Update” I am on but I really wanted to share the mini bounty I picked from the garden yesterday morning along with a progress report on some of the other things I’m growing!

This is what was ready to be picked! Some little red potatoes, cherry tomatoes and some beets. The beets I might “pickle” for later!

Last week I trimmed back most of the excess leaves on the big tomato plants in the hopes all the tomatoes will ripen faster. It seems to be helping. I was so worried I was doing it wrong and I was just going to kill the plant!

I have my first baby green pepper! It’s about 2 inches across and growing.

And here are my watermelons. I was very specific about calling them watermelons… according to Dillon I can’t keep asking people to come check out my melons lol 😳

I only have 4 of them so far but considering they were just an experiment I am quite impressed with myself lol!

As you can see, black thumb notwithstanding, I am actually managing to grow some veggies for my family and I to eat!

I have already started planning my “Garden Expansion” for next year 😮

  1. Well, if you had a black thumb, you don’t anymore! I really have a black thumb but I’m getting closer to brown since I’ve managed to keep some succulents alive. I don’t think I’ll ever be a green thumb but I’m pretty happy that more of my plants are surviving. I’m going to move you closer to green thumb territory since you actually have edible fruit and more growing! Nice job!
