Just thought I’d post a little update about how remarkably well the garden is coming along!
|Tomato (left), arugula, Swiss chard (center), ayote (left), jicama (top) and of course Manchita…my best garden helper!!|
Fast forward only 3 short weeks and everything is growing so quickly!
The tomato plants come up to my chin and I just spotted the first flowers a few days ago.
The jicama has lots of nice green leaves and vines working themselves up the fence. But since it’s a root
|The leaves are a little muddy but the flower is gorgeous!|
I also sprouted some chili dulce seeds (which are a lot like a red bell pepper).
The jalapenos are coming a long as well.
After the first cherry tomato seeds sprouted from kitchen scraps, I got super excited and started saving a bazillion cherry tomato seeds and planted them — not thinking they would all survive, but, they have!! So now I have a number of small plants growing – that I guess I’ll keep giving love to and see what happens. I was thinking that if they actually grow and succeed, I can give them away to folks. Food is food, right?
