Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s been since Christmas since we last updated. The garden is going well. With the holiday recovery completed, I think I will be able to post more regularly again!
We are still spending some time helping the community garden dissolve (the local college bought the land to turn it into a parking lot). We have found the plants and gardening items some great homes. We took in these pineapples and are hoping to nurse them back to health.
Some of the stepping stones, in the new walkway, are from the community garden as well. We are hoping the steps help with the foot traffic and dirt in the backyard.
Lettuce season is winding down. As usual we have enjoyed it! With the warmer winter this year, it wasn’t a stellar crop, but we enjoyed quite a few dinner salads!
Since the weather has been warmer, my Seminole pumpkins never stopped producing!
The collard greens were a first and my favorite this year! I will definitely grow them again! We have been picking off them since early December.
The beautiful red Pentas are the only thing blooming in the backyard. Above right, we have marigold seedlings started for spring gardening.
We’ve been having fun making terrariums with the little gardeners!!! A post with details coming soon.
