Some lovely updates. I’m so excited.
All by the way taken with new iPhone.
It’s hard to tell a noticeable difference in size as we look at our garden everyday, but today I finally saw that the pumpkins are truly getting taller!
Noticeable growth in the peppers suddenly too.
And now look at all these new tomatoes!
Installation of games and fun at NYU Game Center. They also have a 8-bit game workshop going on this weekend. Check it out if you’re around.
Got the new iPhone4 a day early, hip hip!
Today marks 21 days for our garden!
Here is the tomatoes, peppers, carrots, beans, peas and catgrass.
Corn and pumpkins in this box. As you can see in C1 and D1-4, we started growing more green and yellow beans!
These are the new beans just 2 days ago…see how much they grew already?
These are the current beans in the other box. We’ve had such success with the beans so far. They’re big and strong guys!
Do you see what I see.. do you see what I see.. tomatoes!! Almost all the tomato plants are showing little buds. We had some concerns with 2 of our tomato plants, but they turned themselves around with some love and affection.
Strawberries have so many flowers!
The pea plants have outgrew the beans and now are taller than them! They are climbing up…
Essy’s Cat Grass
We started to water at night and it’s pretty dark up on the roof, so we got some solar power lights. They surprisingly work really well.
Our gardener portrait. I look like a turnip. )
Here is the garden 2 weeks old.
We put up a tomato cage to help the tomatoes and peppers. We also put up a trellis to assist the peas.
The peas as you can see (D-2) are starting to wrap itself around and up…
The beans are doing so great! We just planted 5 more squares of beans this weekend too.
The tomato plant that resides in A-4 is really starting to get big and bushy.
The flowers of the strawberry plants, so excited!
We changed the catnip to catgrass and that has started to grow, Essy loves it so it will probably get cut often and more planted.. gotta keep her belly full!
"Fine Future Perfect" gallery opening.
We have a video installation in the show. Visit – it’s open until July 31st!
“Fine Future Perfect” is open to the public through July 31st, at 75 Wall Street, NYC. Hours are Monday – Friday: 11am-5pm and Saturdays Noon – 5pm (or by appointment).
Today is Day 10 and the garden is getting it’s first official real rainfall. We checked on the garden before the rain started and this is how things are….
The carrots have started to rise! I wonder what it looks like under that soil.. )
Peas are doing good. I still have a few weeks to figure out a nice pea recipe.
The pumpkins are getting it’s leaves on them!!! Want to know something amazing? Matthew’s pumpkin he had last year lasted from Oct 09- May 10. RIP RAHM.
Strawberries have some new growth.
Here’s the brocoli and cauliflower that are growing inside for a few weeks. Sadly though it looks like Essy overtook the fence and got into these and killed some of the broccoli.
2 of our tomato plants we’re not quite sure about. They had some bad leaves a few days ago and just didn’t look that healthy. They look a little better, so we’re hoping for the best, we’ve been nurturing them.
A side track from our garden for a day…
Day 8, the beans are continuing their journey into bean victory, so we had to thin them today. It makes me quite sad to see some of them work so hard and then…..
See, it’s like a bean jungle!
Matthew thinning them.
~Prayer circle~ as we put them back in the soil and they will now give back.
The garden as seen from our other roof.
It’s been 6 days since the garden has been planted and what a explosion already! This heat in NY is really making them grow quick, along with my magic spells I say while watering them.
This was Day 4 and 2 pumpkins started to show, a few corns and 1 little bean!
Day 5 – look at those beans! We came up to the roof and everything magically appeared overnight!
The corn is doing great, every single one of the seeds grew! Every one!
The peas took a little longer, but on Day 6 they started to appear….
6 days in and here’s how we’re doing.
Also, I should note that our broccoli and cauliflower from seeds inside have started to grow as well.
