Hi all! I have been reading your blogs a lot, and am constantly amazed by your gardens! I want to learn from you!🌻
My garden got off to a slow start what with the wet cold May & June. By now I expected much more ssuccess from my plamts since last year at this time I was harvesting and replanting. But nope😢 my garden is sad, small, wilting and I’m confused about what’s going on. Here are the photos:
As you can see on the left side my tomatoes and peas are doing fine but the right side is where I planted spinach, bokchoy, radishes, swiss chard, carrots, flowers and they are tiny tiny.
I’m wondering if it’s my soil as I grew tomatoes(LOTS of them) last year in the soil. I added 3 bags of fresh good soil in though so I just don’t know what’s happening. If my soil IS a goner, what can I do to help it? Please don’t tell me I have to remove it all. Because that’s not happening. Help!
Thanks for reading and if you have ANY tips or advice or if this has happened to you…I want to hear from you 🌽🌻🍓
Tomatoes! 🍅 One of the main reasons I wanted to start a garden this year. Delicious little gems that often grow bountiful yields. My mom planted three plants last year and got literally thousands of little cherry tomatoes…I was inspired.
This year I’ve chosen 5 varieties of tomatoes. Each one is a test, as I don’t have a clue what will do well in my garden.
1) Early Cascade
2) Cherry Yellow Pear
3) Red Grape
4) Money Maker(larger)
5) Sweet Million
My gardener friend gave me 2 mystery tomato plants which will no doubt produce some fruits as well. I will be spacing my planting dates apart so they don’t start producing tomatoes all at once. Thus far I’ve planted my Early Cascade and 1 mystery plant. Later this week I’ll plant the rest. I have been cutting off the lower stems and burying 2/3 of the plant, this is supposed to help the plant grow stronger.
Have you planted any of these tomato plants? Did you have success? Happy growing 🍅🌱
It’s been awhile, friends. And I’ve started a vegetable garden. This is something I’ve always dreamed of doing; so I’m extra excited to show you what I’m doing and how the garden is coming along. Questions and comments are welcome as I’m learning and eager to see what others are creating in their green spaces.
This is my garden yesterday. My next posts will be about what I’ve planted and how I did it. 🌱🌱🌱
