Merry, how is your garden coming along? How are the water melons doing? Have the potatoes grown much yet?merry wrote: ↑Sun May 07, 2023 12:01 pm
New potatoes (earlies, in two tubs)
20 Sungold tomatoes, some last year's seed and some new (they are much cheaper obviously to grow from seed rather than buy plants, but a LOT more work...however.. I have the time)
5 water melon (a new venture, since the greenhouse should keep them alive till the air temp is higher in June
one Galia melon (so far)
some golden heritage carrots, 2 rows (in our new raised bed)
two rows of peas (also in the raised bed)
Lots more to do but I feel it's a good start!
JYM gave me paper pot maker this eco-friendly seedling pot maker for Christmas. It's a bit fiddly to make them but it's good that you have an endlessly renewable supply, and also that you can lift the paper pots directly into their beds when it's time to plant them out.
I love gardening and until two years back I used to live in different shared houses with a garden and we'd grow so many different veggies, I miss that kind of a garden! I hope you will show more of yours soon
Now me and my boyfriend have a closed balcony, which is also great, since it's basically a greenhouse. At the moment I have four different kinds of tomatoes going: Black sweet cherry (my own seeds), a red cherry and two different yellow cherries (also my seeds). Idk, I feel cherry tomatoes work better in pots than big tomatoes. There are also two physalis, two paprika and two cucumber-plants. And a ton of basil. I'd love to have more, but in the summer the balcony becomes a jungle. I'll add a picture of the growing situation at present Still lots of space, but that will change soon when it gets warmer and when I move the cucumbers outside.
