Garden update - Day 101 (about time too!)
Summer was a little late to start but we had an amazing August, now the trees are turning, the fresh fall air is coming through and my garden seems to think it’s mid July! I’m sure I’ve got another month of beautifully fresh salads and veggies, then I’ll try my hand at some winter crops. Biggest accomplishment this season are the tomatoes I grew from seed, every single one survived and flourished in a garden that hardly gets any sun… so strange.
1 - Garden, small but full =)
2 - Baby french Leeks (from seed, sown in garden)
3 - Red and white salad Scallions (from seed, sown in garden)
4 - Parsley (gone crazy again this year, will probably last through the winter) & Baby Leeks / Red salad lettuce (all from seed, sown in garden)
5 - Cheery tomatoes, crawling across garden (bought as a seedling at the market)
6 - Basil / Heirloom cherry tomatoes (from seed, started indoors)
7 - Heirloom tomatoes, several varieties (from seed, started indoors)
8 - All my tomatoes started from seed indoors, cannot believe they survived!
Garden Update - Day 46
Garden Update - Day 12
Seedlings dying for sun. Ha…ha?
It’s been 5 weeks since I planted these little guys. Out of 32 pots only 15 sprouted anything and of those 15 about 10 are doing well. We’ve had maybe a week of total sunshine out of the last 5, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at the results. I haven’t weaned them yet so I’m expecting more plant deaths when I move them outside.
Lunch. Caprese Salad, nom nom nom.
