We have really enjoyed our pallet garden and the fruits of our labor are starting to show through!
Plus we have a really duitiful garden guardian who keeps a pretty good eye on things. Although I have seen a few chunky paws imprinted in the soul but I don't want to point fingers at anyone...
Tomatoes! The plant is growing like NUTS but we only have about 5 tomatoes growing. Hoping for more soon!
I have since chopped off the romaine you see above. I read how to harvest it incorrectly to begin with but have now figured it out :) Supposedly you cut the stems off about two inches above the ground and the lettuce will start growing again.
We also have peppers, sweet potatoes, eggplant and cucumbers.
Currently we have about four cucumbers that are making their way through. And if they are anything like last years we will have cucumbers to hopefully last us all summer.
I also have rosemary and basil growing like crazy on our little deck garden. The basil has been great to make pesto in the Vitamix!
The joy I get from being able to walk out our back door and pick ingredients for dinner is immense.
I love being able to eat from our yard and to know that we've put the time and effort into it and are saving money at the same time.
