Wyoming Garden Update – the greenhouse edition.

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.garden tour 4
Wow! I can’t believe how much this plot has changed in a month’s time! This photo was taken in July…garden tour 7Same spot – about 5-6 weeks later! greenhouse in wyI 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!greenhouse in wy

I need to look up the name of this beautiful flower...

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.

Tomatoes are hitting the roof!

    As I was reading Little House in the Big Woods, I realized how much your garden problems-deer- you’ve mentioned are similar to the Ingalls. Their dog kept the deer away…

    Did you all erect the greenhouse to keep them away? I missed that!

    (I started a new blog called Little House Companion…will continue with This Simple Home…but won’t be updating both daily…)

      No, the greenhouse was already up – I had just never used it before this year. I just use it for warm weather veggies.
      We tried a dog – it dug up my tomatoes and ate my chickens. :( We installed an electric fence for the deer, which works great for the deer, but doesn’t keep the rabbits or coons out.
