The tomato plants I thought would grow so large, but they are much smaller than the others planted in the key-hole gardens! I also planted cucumbers here which are starting to come up~!

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

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

 

sprouting

I used to do some sprouting, but not for a while. Yesterday I went to a permaculture class and met a lady who several years ago had a brain tumor and other health issues. She said she is now a herbalogist. She recommended listening to Dr. Robert Morse on youtube, so I listened to him a bit and want to learn more from his videos. He talked about beans – how they were best if they were sprouted.

Here I put my 2 sprouters together and have mung beans, Amaranth and black-eyed peas. We’ll see how it goes !
