2018 Garden Update #2 – Tomato Eater

As you know, my garden this year consists of two tomato plants. One is a cherry tomato plant, and the other is an heirloom tomato plant.

The heirloom tomato plants looks pretty good, but tomato-wise, it hasn’t produced a lot. We’ve had exactly two tomatoes. We ate the first one, and we were watching the second one get bigger when one day I went outside and it was gone. There’ve only been a few flowers since the second tomato disappeared, but none of them have become tomatoes. In the past few days, however, I’ve noticed more flowers, so I’m hoping that we’ll have another tomato. Continue reading

2018 Garden Update #1

The garden has moved. The original plan was to place the tomatoes on our deck, and they did start there. I helped move them out of their original containers into bigger pots, and we placed them on the deck. The tomato plants were maybe six inches tall, but we went ahead and put tomato cages around them. They dwarfed the little plants, but as the days passed, the little plants grew. Continue reading

2017 Garden Update #3 – Winding Down

As summer ends and we enter fall, my garden has started to wind down. Only a few things are still growing, so this will probably be the last update for the year.

My zucchini never made it. It might have been too wet for them, I’m not quite sure, but I never saw a single baby zucchini. A few of the plants grew quite large and there were a lot of flowers, but nothing happened after that point. Continue reading

2017 Garden Update #1

As promised, here’s a garden update and some pictures!

So as I mentioned originally, I bought some kale for my bunny. We got two little plants and we put them in a pot on our deck. I’m not sure what was happening, but it wasn’t doing great. The leaves were turning brown, like it was getting maybe too much sun, or not enough? In the end though, it didn’t really matter, because someone else was eating it. My dad ended up moving the kale down to join the rest of the garden, but when it was moved, it was eaten, and I ended up with just little stalks and no leaves. Now, however, it’s starting to grow back, so I have cute little kale stalks.

My kale is coming back!

Planting a Garden

I ended up planting a small garden this year, and now I’m even more excited for the summer to come!

I’m not really a huge vegetable fan, but I’ve always liked the idea of planting a seed or small plant and having it produce something you can eat, so while I probably won’t be doing any of the eating, I’m excited for the growing. Which is going well, at least so far.

We went to Pike’s to get some small plants, and came back with a small assortment. Continue reading
