Letting Life Lead
Just a quick update on my little plots. I am so excited! It is okay to laugh at me for swooning and being giggly over one pepper and three pea pods (one of which I ate because I couldn’t help myself).
Compost update. The right pile had a respectable steam going, but the left was only slightly warm, so I consolidated into one pile yesterday. I dug into the bowels of my refrigerator for refuse to toss in there too. You can’t see from this picture, but there is a good amount of green in there.
My first harvest. One pepper, not a peck. And not enough to pickle. No matter. I growed it mah-self.
Let’s play Where’s Waldo with the peas. I ate the biggest one, but there are two more babies in this shot. I didn’t believe the garden video diaries when they said these things won’t have anything until you turn around and then they are there. Totally true.,,,,
I am also excited to report other happenings!
I did not expect to get anything from those seeds I threw down last week. Especially since my husband almost drove over them! I don’t see the carrots yet, but three out of four makes me giddy. Should I press my luck and plant some radishes and lettuce?
Oh! I almost forgot. My tomatoes are not throwing fruit in the over hot, humid weather. They have grown tall with healthy looking leaves, however. Usually I can’t grow them past my knees, and these are up to over three feet tall!
Maybe I should change this series title to, “Diary of a Haphazard Gardener”.
