It's been about a month since we've planted the garden, and things are looking great. We've been getting lots of strawberries (Cooper, our lab, especially loves to stick his head in the strawberry barrel, jerk). We have tomatillo plants, green beans, lettuce, and radishes all coming up from seed. Most of the plants we bought are doing good, too. Here's how things are coming along:
We bought these fingerling potatoes from a plant. It's not looking so hot, but it's our first time trying potatoes. We'll see what happens. It really hasn't grown much in a month.
We bought these vidalia onions from a plant, too. I think they'll be ready to pull in another month. Lookin good.
The three tomato plants are growing like crazy, but we won't have any tomatoes for another month or two.
Here's the most exciting thing growing: jalapenos. The hubs started these inside months ago. They're small but growing bigger every day. I see salsa in my future!
The kale is also taking off. I see kale chips in my future as well!
Unfortunately, the watermelon have stalled. This is about the same size as they were a month ago. Bummer. I love watermelon.
All the herbs are doing really well, but the mint, which came back from last year, is growing like crazy. Clearly I am not drinking enough mojitos! Anyone want to come over and help me tackle this?
