Although I have not been posting, the garden has continued to grow. I am proud to say that I have many vegetables that are just about ready to be harvested. My tomato plants are slightly out of control, but I have just been ripping pieces off that have no evidence of flowering. I don’t think it will hurt the plant.
I have even enjoyed a cherry tomato.
I have a few other vegetables growing quite nicely. I was afraid that my banana peppers wouldn’t grow because they were over-shadowed by my huge tomato plants, but they seem to be growing just fine! Almost ready to be picked!
Below is my latest project (again with the help of my husband). For my cucumbers, I have made a trellis out of old windows and wire, hopefully not to interfere with my lettuce and carrots on the other side. I painted the frame, took out the glass and replaced it with wire so the cucumbers have something to grab. Total cost: FREE! The paint was even free at an ACE weekend promotion. 🙂
This is the other side of it, where my lettuce and a few carrots located. I think it is going to work out nicely. It is not nearly as pretty as the other side, but still functional.
Peas! I am very excited about the various vegetables popping up in my garden. It will allow me to eat healthier and it is now FREE (with a little hard work).
I will be out in the garden again tomorrow! Hopefully more pictures to post. 🙂
