2011 Garden

Minus a few plants that we will be adding in, I present to you the garden of 2011! This year we expanded about 2x the size of last year.

I present to you the garden of 2011!!

Everything will eventually have the shade/wind protection fabric on, we need to order more.

We planted the tomatoes and peppers in their SIP containers.

Some flowers this year, mostly to attract some bees.

Lastly, we’ll have 2 pumpkins soon enough (seeds have been started inside) and also trying for a watermelon this year.

 

Hooray! Gardening season is here!

Broccoli/Cauliflower

The broccoli and cauliflower are looking strong.  They no longer have to be under the green house.

Here are some comparison pictures:

PS. DID YOU NOTICE? WE HAVE WATER ON THE ROOF NOW. That deserved caps.   Last year we literally carried buckets of water everyday up to the roof, it sucked. This year we have a hose!! EXCITEMENT.

We also got some gardening cloth to help protect from the wind this year.  We can raise higher or lower depending on the weather.  Since we are on the roof with this, the wind can get pretty strong.  If you remember the wind killed my pumpkin last August and I cried.

So windy for the garden today. Stay strong guys! :(

Our inside window farm pepper plant is looking great.

Our pumpkin plant (no lie) is doing really good, the leaves are so bushy and lovely.  No idea what we are going to do with this, I don’t think it’s possible to grow with the roots, but still a fun experiment. :)
