I know it has been a bit since I posted... We have been busy in the Wee Garden... It really is not so small anymore, but we are still loving it. I wanted to do a quick update on what has been going on.
We are rapidly approaching 100 pots, and more plants than I want to count. It takes about 2 hours to water everything, and we try to alternate days, or tag team it. The time it takes is so very worth it. We totally enjoy being out there, and sharing in this experience. The quality of the food we have harvested can not be compared to the tasteless produce we were getting from the grocery store. We very seldom buy from the grocery store anymore. If we don't have it growing here yet, we try to get it from a local farm store or produce stand.
So, here is the roll call of what we have growing in the Wee Garden right now. Hopefully I won't forget any one, and this does not include any of the seeds I started this week, that have not sprouted yet.
|Most of the Wee Garden|
We have six varieties of tomatoes... Beefsteak, Mexico, Rosalita, Black Cherry , Brandy Wine, and Church.
|Waiting for the Black Cherry tomatoes to ripen|
We have Red Potatoes, Carrots, Eggplant, Zucchini, Broccoli, Lemon Cucumber, and the Salad Table.
|Eggplant just starting to bud|
|Broccoli ready to harvest|
|Baby Broccoli and a couple of Sweet Cayenne|
We have 4 types of peppers... Sweet Cayenne, Bells, Cayennetta, and Jalapenos.
|The Jalapenos are almost ready!|
We had to add some fruit to the mix, so we have Cantaloupe, Meyers Lemons, Key Limes, and most recently added Strawberries.
For seasoning... Cilantro, Basil, Oregano, Onions, and Garlic.
|Baby Carrots, Seeded Carrots, and Basil|
That is how the Wee Garden grows today!
Now, GO PLANT SOMETHING!
