How does your garden grow?
I enjoy checking on my plants every day. I water them, and sometimes I stop to pull weeds. But I'm always checking things out. These pics are from Monday night.
I finally moved my peppers outside. This time I focused agressively on the "hardening off" process and the transplant went off without a hitch. I think the peppers have been the plants I babied the most this year...I feel very protective of them. I planted them on Saturday and they still look great. It had been 7.5 weeks since I started the seeds. I lost count, but I think there are 6 or 7 bell peppers. I also have 4 banana peppers that were a gift from Marilyn. One of those plants has a pepper already forming. ::squee::
Tragedy has befallen my cucumbers. I started out with so many nice plants. I lost four in the transplant. I lost 3 more that I "saved for later". That left me with just two plants, and after a tough start they were showing new growth. Then I found my strongest plant broken. I think it's done. What do you think?
Lastly, I just love my little oak trees. I think I love them more now that I'm not worried they will suddenly die over the winter. They sure do grow slow, but I am excited about the little patches of shade they now throw. I get excited about the new shoots of leaves that I see growing from the branches. And the kids can no longer push them over with their toys. Can you believe that several years ago when I first got these trees, they could practically ride over them in the cozy coupe (the car on the left)?? =D
