I talked about our strawberries (or lack of) in my previous post, but here’s an update on the rest of our little garden.
I’m growing cilantro, oregano, and basil in pots on the deck. I’ve already got some cilantro and oregano dried, but the basil is not doing well. We had quite a bit of rain a week or so ago, and I wonder if the plants got oversaturated.
Baby Roma tomatoes!
Blooms on the pepper plants – from right to left we have a red Bell pepper, jalapeno, and a yellow Bell pepper.
The tomatoes by the deck are doing well – I know they’re way too close, and we still need to stake the outside plants. These are Heirloom Beefsteak and Arkansas Traveler varieties.
Our cucumbers died due to the snowstorm in May. Sheesh. However, the rest of our tomatoes are fine, and the sweet corn is growing. (The tomatoes need to be staked and the corn needs to be thinned out, too.)
We stuck some Bibb lettuce and spinach in on the ends of the strawberries in an attempt to keep Jed out of the strawberries, but no luck. We will have some salad greens for ourselves, though.
I’m really looking forward to harvesting the tomatoes and restocking the freezer with homemade marinara like I did last year. It’s been such a treat retraining ourselves to enjoy “real” food, without all the additives and chemicals.
