I am so proud of my little garden and I have babies galore! Baby zucchinis. Baby pumpkins. Baby tomatoes.
Gardening was a bit of an experiment for me, as prior attempts have failed miserably due to neglect. I would just forget to water them, and they would fry in the backyard, which has no shade. I guess becoming vegetarian and reading up on the benefits of home grown, organic produce has made me a lot more attentive, because most of my plants are thriving.
There are a few exceptions. The cucumbers were off to a slow start but seem to be coming along. The first batch of lettuce would have been ok if not for the dog burying her rawhide in that container. The peas? I’m not really sure. They are growing but the plants are starting to turn yellow. I’m not sure if I’m watering them too much or too little, or maybe there is something else wrong. I’ll have to watch those.
I thought the following tips from Take Part were helpful in making your fruits and veggies last longer. I posted something similar a while ago, but this one had a few additional tips I had not seen previously.
Baby mommas! 🙂
