Time for a Garden Update

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┬ávines are┬ástill 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.

    I hope it all survives the move! I know how hard it can be getting a garden going (and keeping it alive in this heat). There’s nothing like fresh vegetables!

  • The heat is the worst… I end up having to water the garden 2-3 times a day, just to keep it from kicking the bucket!

    Great update! I really enjoyed reading about your garden! Congratulations on it!

  • Your plants will survive the move if you dot the right way. You got to get the whole plant including the roots and be very careful not to cut roots whenever you uproot the plant. Simply put, get the whole plant including the soil. Good luck.
