Last week for T stands for Tuesday I promised an update on my garden this week.
It’s flourishing! Tons of blossoms. I think we are just at the cusp of production.
There are already jalapenos on the plant…
and roma tomatoes…. come on fresh salsa!
The deck box garden is doing really well too.
I ended up pulling up the horse radish that was growing in here since there is another plant in the big garden space and planted my Egyptian walking onions instead. I saved the bulbs from the top of the plants last year in a paper bag in the shed. They overwintered out there will seemingly no ill effects.
The planters along the railing are also looking great with the herbs and green onions. I’ve been thinning the green onions by using them…so nice to have those fresh green literally right outside my door. I couldn’t be happier.
It meets Marvin’s approval as well.
Over the weekend I adding a little bit of ambiance to the deck with a string of lights.
We have yet to try them out at night but I think they will be a lot of fun.
I also noticed some birds have been very busy….
I do remember seeing a chickadee hanging around here quite often. I’d have to bet he is the guilty party.
I’m also going to continue to share my CSA box each week as I really believe that its well worth the cost to bring fresh organic veggies to your table each week…provided you have enough people to eat all those veggies.
Week 2: cilantro, basil plant, kale, green onions, garlic scapes, mixed spring greens, head of leaf lettuce, strawberries, carrots, kohlrabi, broccoli and white turnips that are eaten like radishes. Can’t wait to see what the next box brings.
Today I’ll be finishing a commissioned seamstress project. I was asked to shorten some curtains and sew lining fabric behind the thin linen for some actual light blocking.
What are you doing today?
