Garden Grow

My garden is growing very large, I am very proud of it. We had a couple of very hot days and some of the leaves on the bottoms of the plants are getting a little brown. I have been watering them a lot but the sun is super hot and it’s hard to keep up. The soil dries up almost instantly when the sun hits so I try very hard to water them twice a day if I have to unless I know it’s going to rain. I haven’t picked anything yet but I have a few peppers that are ready to be served. My tomatoes are still green but I think in a few weeks they will be nice plump red tomatoes ๐Ÿ™‚ YAY! My squash plant finally has flowers so my little flying saucer squash will be blooming soon.

I made a Pinterest board that has tips and gardening ideas on it feel free to follow ๐Ÿ™‚

So lets see how my garden is growing, shall we ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ive lost two plants already and my squash plant has a bunch of flowers but no veggies so I am hoping it’s not a dud like last time I did them. It’s been super hot and we went away and someone was suppose to water the garden for me but never did ๐Ÿ™

  1. I love the photos and the infographic!! Once I finally have a forever house, I can’t wait to start landscaping and gardening.

    • my soils has a lot of rocks in it but it’s been treated for so long I think everything will grow even the massive weeds.

      No pumpkins, I have little flying saucer squash, I tried pumpkin on year but I would need a lot more space and I love my tomatoes and peppers ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh no ๐Ÿ™ My Parsley and oregano aren’t doing that great at all but I think the pot they are in is two small. I found a thing called a patio planter, I might grab a few of those to use next year for the herbs since I think they would grow better and has a lot more room.

  2. Wow your garden has grown a lot! It’s amazing to see how much all the plants have grown. And that infogrpahic is so handy! I am going to pin that as well! I have chives and basil in the windowsil here, oops. They do seem to be growing well though. I really want a coriander plant as well as I often use that while cooking.
