I have been meaning to get this update up sooner… but aahhh. Life is full and wonderful, and not to be over-crammed.
Here is a photo taken during July, and the broccoli has all been picked since then. You can see the strawberries have most of their leaves eaten off. Not sure if it was deer or what – but I am going with deer, since they have been my main nemesis in gardening! I have pulled and eaten the onions in this pot.
The carrots have all been pulled and eaten, the cilantro has been picked and picked and then went to seed, the basil is still doing pretty good, although the leaves are getting smaller.
Wow! I can’t believe how much this plot has changed in a month’s time! This photo was taken in July…Same spot – about 5-6 weeks later! I tossed a wildflower packet I had in there, just figuring nothing would bloom before frost. Well, I was oh so wonderfully wrong! There are bachelors buttons, zinnias, marigolds, baby’s breath, and lots of unknown pretty flowers. So fun to see what all is coming up!
Inside the greenhouse, the tomatoes have shot up to hit the roof! I have harvested a handful of grape tomatoes, two ‘Cherokee Purple’ slicing tomatoes, one HUGE green bell pepper, a chile pepper, and about 6-8 small cucumbers.
Speaking of cucumbers… This is one plant! Going crazy. Gonna have to train it better next year.
Overall, I am delighted with how things are progressing in my greenhouse, and have learned a lot for next year. Hope you enjoyed this greenhouse tour!
