Thanks to a few unseasonable 90 degree days, my Arugula is bolting :(
Meaning it doesn't taste so great anymore and pretty soon will be inedible. I pinched a bunch off though, cleaned it well and added it to our tomato sauce tonight for a little spice.
This herb pot has about doubled in size since I planted it two weeks ago.
It contains mint, oregano, and thyme (purchased all together in one much smaller pot for $5 at Trader Joes)
I have a few hanging tomato plants that I just potted up this weekend and so far, they seem to be growing pretty well.
This guy is a Jubilee tomato (grape sized orange fruit). The top is planted with a jalapeno plant and a few marigolds.
These are standard Grape (on the left with purple basil and marigold) and Yellow Pear (with marigold and some basil seeds waiting to sprout in top)
I've got a Brandywine growing in this pot. I potted him up about a week ago and he seems to be doing awesome. I stuck a few marigolds in and a water bottle irrigation system.
He's hanging out on the side of my driveway which actually seems to get decent sun so I'm going to clean this area up and probably add another pot or two.
And now for the garden beds. Here's a nice overview pic for you.
Front Row (left to right): Cabbage, Carrots, Rosemary, Beets
2nd row: Empty, brocolli (which doesn't seem to be doing fabulously and I might pull soon), chives
In the back row you can see a tomato - I don't remember what kind (I have it written down somewhere though - I think maybe beefsteak)
A little overlap here.
Front Row: Rosemary, Beets, Radishes
Middle Row: Brocolli, chives, empty, Leeks (doubt these are going to work out... started from seed too late)
Back row: Both visible plants are Brussels sprouts.
Back Row: Turnips, Parsley, Super Sugar Snap Peas (sure hope I'm going to actually get some peas soon!)
Middle Row: Cabbage, empty, Lincoln Peas
Front Row: empty, empty, mystery Tomato
Front Row: Cabbage, Radishes, Cabbage, Turnips, Empty, Empty
Middle Row: Empty, Red Bell Pepper, Red Bell Pepper, Empty, Empty, Rhubarb
Back Row: Purple Cherokee Tomato (not really visible), Boston Pickling Cucumber (seeds just sprouted, you can't really see them), Yellow Pear Tomato, Sweet Burpless Cucumber (seeds just sprouted, you can't see them yet), empty, spaghetti squash (seeds haven't sprouted yet).
Today, along with the arugula, I also harvested several radishes (After washing, I added the greens to our pasta sauce as well), some spinach, mustard greens, and lettuces - all of which also went in the pasta sauce.
I have TONS of tomato seedlings left to deal with. I have a feeling I will also probably have about 25 seedlings left over with no home. I forgot to take pictures of a few squash plants that aren't in the main beds, my hops (which are taller than our roof already!), my blueberry bush (that seems to keep coming back since I abandoned it in the back of the yard a few years ago but it's still much to small to make fruit), and my single thumb-sized adorable Meyer Lemon that I am praying will one day make it into a cocktail :)
