And as a reminder, this is what the garden looked like at the end of June :
The love affair continues.
We are slowly, but surely getting produce out of this garden. Every afternoon there is at least a handful of sungold tomatoes (much to Ellerie's joy - she gets to eat them ALL). And every few days I get a big red tomato to turn into a salad. We've had a few purple peppers (but I wasn't a fan! They were so bitter!). And a few small zucchinis (that we douse in olive oil, salt and pepper and throw on the grill...so good).
I planted some green onion (purchased from the grocery story) and we'll see how they do, so far, I have just been trimming the tops when we need some for meals. My cucumbers are not too impressive and my butternut squash and pumpkin plants have lots of flowers, but no successful fruit. Things are looking a little yellow which I am learning means not enough nutrients. I think I need to make another trip to pick up worm tea...
My herbs have all died. They never really took off to begin with and are in full sun in the old fountain. Next year (or maybe this fall) I'll move them so they are shaded.
My compost bin is doing well! It's sort of addicting, saving kitchen scraps and leaves for the bin. I hope we get some really great dirt to use next season.
I'm still out there, fussing a few times a day. And I just love it.
