A little background, I love gardening. I have been growing vegetables in containers for a few years now seeing as I was student-living in apartments where there is no land. The one apartment I had with a little land unfortunately had little sunshine on that land so I still put my vegetables in containers on the sunny patio. I started my plants in April or May and after being a bit too zealous with my watering, I went to my mother's house and 'borrowed' some of her plants.
I was very impressed that nothing died while I was in Ontario. I am less impressed with the plants after spending the weekend eating tomatoes and cucumbers from my cousin's plants. I guess that is the trade off of living in the cooler Maritimes.
|Cucumber! Someone please pollinate me!|
|I enjoy trying new plants. Experiment #1 - Sunberry.|
|Experiment #2 - Peanut|
|Ground Cherries are growing well!|
|We cannot keep up with the lettuce.|
|Experiment #3 - Melon What are the chances of actually getting fruit?|
|The containers may not be pretty but they do the job.|
|Hot peppers. Every time summer I buy a pepper plant and am not impressed with the yield. Every fall I vow that was my last year trying pepper. The next spring I find myself buying another pepper plant at the market. Maybe this will be the year it pays off.|
|My pathetic attempt to entice the bees to come pollinate my veg plants. A flower gardener I am not.|
