Check this post from March 23 for previous pictures so you can see how far it's coming.
I've already picked and eaten 10 of these:
And two of these (with many more to come in the next few weeks):
I decided tomato cages weren't worth my money, so twine is my new BFF.
I learned that you have to be a plant-murderer if you end up with every single seed sprouting.
|These were my 3 "pots of dirt" from the previous post.|
It looks like I'll be having tomatoes all summer, since my ones from seed are starting to flower just now:
Other than the wildflowers, I've had some other garden casualties.
|My salvia has seen better days.|
|My pepper plant got some kinda blight?|
|My one little pepper--it had fallen to the ground the next morning.|
|My "easy-to-care-for" orchid. Not so easy if you don't have a perfect light level for it.|
I'm pretty happy with the way my first attempt at gardening is turning out, though! Lots of tomatoes and a steady supply of strawberries and basil. I'll be planting some different flowers to replace the salvia this week. I'm hoping that the 3 H's of the Florida summer (heat, humidity, hurricanes) don't kill everything off!
