As promised . . . an update on the kitchen garden.
We have come a long way . . . made some mistakes, had a few heartbreaks, learned some lessons both what to do and what not to do. BUT . . we are beginning to enjoy some delicious veggies!
Lesson #1 . . . don't trust a tag that says "Bush pickle" ! HA . . . the darned thing is trailing all over, up and down and reaching out to hold hands with everyone in the garden!
Lesson #2 . . . We are still trying to figure out exactly what 1" of water a week means ! (every plant has it's own idea and thirst level) .
Lesson #3 . . . if at first it doesn't grow . . try again, water more, water less , move it or yank it out and plant another . . . or POUT !
Tip from an old gardening pro . . . . EPSOM SALTS ! Who knew???
Enjoy the pics . . . so far we have enjoyed some nice tomatoes, pickles, little fingers eggplant, nasturtiums in a salad, patty pan squash (one of my favorites!) and yes, for some spice, jalapenos! I can't wait till the butternut squash is ready . . another favorite!
See how busy that little "bottoms up" bee is! ? I know just how he feels!
The sad note is that for some reason Zucchini does not like my garden! But . . I'm not giving up on the poor little things! Of all the darned easy to grow veggies . . this is the one who is our problem child!
Enjoy . . . . and remember to eat your veggies!
