It's time for another container garden update, or as I'll call it... Grow it Green.
Or more appropriately, try to grow it green anyway. Other than tomatoes, I'm not getting much to harvest just yet. I did snip one of the bell peppers last week and boy was it tasty!
As I mentioned in our last garden post, I threw in the towel on my strawberries. The foliage looks amazing, but where oh where are my berries?
I've never had any luck with strawberries in pots - even those awesome terra cotta strawberry planters - have you?
The Jack Be Littles are also quite impressive when it comes to foliage and blooms, but so far, there no mini pumpkins growing yet. I'm still hopeful.
My beans absolutely hated the heat and humidity. They went from a vibrant plant (as seen on the left below) to a sparse wannabe Charlie Brown plant. We've gotten a few string beans off of it, but not enough to enjoy.
I planted the cucumbers much later than I should have, so we haven't had anything to harvest yet. Both the chives and basil are doing well, but I'm not using them fast enough. I've torn basil off and thrown it over the railing for the woodchucks - hope they appreciate it. Tut loves to smell it, but refuses to eat it. He prefers the string beans.
How's your garden doing?
