garden update

Nice to work in the garden a bit ~ I pulled all the radishes. Yesterday I planted 5 tomato plants – 4 around the recycled blue wastebasket which I had drilled holes in on the bottom and sides to just above ground level. Then all you have to do is water in the container (after it’s filled with compost). Each plant needs 5 gallons a week, I think. Also, today I started a spiral herb garden – just need to find more bricks or rocks 🙂 I’ve always wanted one, and now must be the time !~

The plan is not to have deer jump in the fence; Scott put up green fishing line way up high and tied white little rags around on it ~ sure wanting it to work !5.29.17memorialday 013.JPG

Horseradish growing tall – not sure how big it will get, but there is a flower on top starting to form.

Last but not least, the newest key-hole garden. I just put all my old seeds in there a few weeks ago and this is what’s coming up – sunflowers or squash – we’ll have to wait & see.5.29.17memorialday 016

I also pulled up this avocado plant, not knowing what it was. There are 3 more growing also in the compost heap I was clearing out to make room for bunches of leaves. I may bring the 3 avocado plants in for the winter and see how they do. Also got 1 tomato from the garden 🙂9-21-16-013
