A while back, I posted about a little garden I was planting. I started with some seeds. You can read about it HERE.
Then Chuck cut out grass in an area of our yard and made way for my garden. We decided to make it a nice shape in case I hated gardening, the area could be turned into landscaping.
I planted my seeds and hoped that some of them would take.
Then, what felt like over night, my garden looked like this:
From left to right: onions, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, carrots, cilantro, (behind the tree) spinach and a raspberry plant, yukon gold potatoes (there are LOTS), then on the far right, rosemary and garlic.
Onions and green peppers…they are just starting to flower.
Cherry tomatoes…I fear I am going to have a TON of tomatoes.
The hot peppers I planted were a mixture. I am not sure what I am going to get when they grow.
Carrots. I pulled one because I thought it was going to be huge, but it was just tiny, so I put it back in the ground.
Cilantro. I didn’t know cilantro would flower after a while. I have to pick some of the ones that haven’t flowered yet and make myself some cilantro-lime rice like they make at Chipotle.
Spinach. I have never grown this before. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. But it turns out I needed to pull some of the leaves earlier than now, because most of them are sprouted and there aren’t many green leaves left. A lesson learned for next year.
Raspberry plant. I was hoping that this would do something. Turns out that it never did anything. I just have a stick in the ground.
Potatoes. I planted one bag of potatoes I got from the garden store. I had no idea one bag would make so many plants. But I have potatoes popping up out of the ground.
So, I am quite proud of myself. I’ll do another update when I actually pull some of them when they are ripe!
I think I might like this gardening thing!
