It’s been a while since I posted about our garden… about time for an update!
We’ve finally got fruits and vegetables growing, a big juicy cucumber (which was delicious) and a bunch of tomatoes. Our eggplant is sprouting and the bell peppers are tiny but beautiful. David’s sister gave us several pumpkin plants from her garden and they are doing very well , though no fruits visible yet.
The cucumber is really the most impressive plant… its vines are growing up onto a bamboo teepee in one direction and across a pallet on the other side. There are quite a few small cucumbers growing and they seem to double in size every time I look at them. Our beans are growing, though we haven’t tried any yet, and the honeydew melon vines are still sprawling across the porch.
One drawback of moving is having to uproot and move our beloved garden. Some of it will go with us… as much of it as possible (including the frame) but I’m afraid we’ll lose some plants in the move and subsequent transplant.
For now, we’ll enjoy our garden and eat as many of our tomatoes and cucumbers as we can before we head west.
