My garden

I used to have a very large garden, but my body just won’t let me take care of one now!

We decided I could keep up with some plants in wine barrels that we cut in half. I got started a month late, but did get to plant 3 bell peppers, 1 Roma tomato, 2 cucumbers and 3 zucchini.

Bell pepper, with the wind we have here, I have to protect them in wire cages or they blow over.

Roma tomato, has about 8 little tomatos on it so far.

The cucumbers were supposed to be bush ones, but are trailing a little. They have a few cucumbers forming and large leaves that hide them.

The zucchini are a round variety, I’ve never grown these before. So far the plants have stayed small and have alot of blooms and a few zucchini forming.

Of course Lucy had to sneak into the pic too!

It’s been several years since I had a garden, so we’ll see how much it produces. I planted some carrots, chives and lettuce, but Jakob walked through them and they never did come up, so in their spot is where Madi planted her peanuts.
