Each spring, I get excited about growing my own vegetable garden. My backyard gets limited sunlight, so I am limited to being a patio gardener. But that doesn’t stop me 🙂 There is something to be said of picking your fruit, vegetables and herbs fresh from your own garden!
My patio garden this year is more limited than usual. I procrastinated due to other issues. I had hoped to redesign my spaces and grow more organic produce and gathered plenty of organic seeds. I am not quite there yet. But I am happy to report:
That the blueberries are looking healthy and I actually ate a few fresh blueberries off my bush this weekend. Some predator has eaten several of the berries earlier. I am still learning how to fight that! Strawberries are still uncertain. But there is hope:-)
Tomatoes— are doing great. I have three plants. I actually have four heirloom tomatoes that are looking good. Two plants are yet to bloom but still there is hope.
My lone eggplant has bloomed and I have an eggplant 🙂
Mint and basil are doing great….
Peppers are blossoming….. and jalapenos once they start are usually ample for my needs
And kale survived the winter and is still here…
Squash and cucumber … so far so good…
I had hoped to grown spinach, beans, lettuce and so much more. My garden this year is smaller than I like. But still a joy to maintain 🙂
