The container garden is finally starting to show signs of growth! The pepper and tomato plants I started from seed are now taking off. Since I started the garden late, the plants still aren't where the should be at this time of year. But maybe we'll see some peppers and tomatoes from these plants by late summer/early fall. I just have to figure out what to do with the 20 some pepper plants I now have. I've come to see that planting EVERY seed in the packet is not the best thing!
The potato plants are quietly doing their own thing. I have to admit, I've kind of neglected them lately. With all the rain we've had, I'm assuming they've been getting enough water. A few weeks ago, the plants had purple blossoms. But now, they're a bit wilted and hanging over the trash can. I can't wait to find out if anything is happening beneath the soil!
I think gardening is becoming a new interest of mine. Something I really want to devote more time to learning about instead of my usual trial and error method. I'm currently reading Mel Bartholomew's All New Square Foot Gardening and making plans for next year's garden!
