How does my garden grow
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
I don't have the largest amount of veggies from my garden and not much of the seeds grew anything, but I am pretty happy with what I got. I have been trying to get tomatoes and chili peppers for several years, but only got 2 tomatoes each year. This year I have cherry tomatoes, Early Girl tomatoes and Beefsteak tomatoes and the Early Girl and Cherry are ripening. I have a few Anaheim Peppers and a couple Big Jim peppers. Not quite ready to pick yet. So I thought I'd put in some pictures.
Zucchini weren't many, but a few got pretty big.
Just a couple really small Butternut squash. I'm not sure if they'll get a little larger or not.
The big surprise was the watermelon looking ones. I didn't plant watermelon, so took the picture to someone who does a lot of gardening and found out that my pumpkins actually did grow. I have four, I think.
I am hoping to expand the garden some so that I can plant other things next year. When all is harvested I will add manure to fertilize the area and go at least 4 ft longer and a couple feet wider if I can manage it.
