Watching my little container garden blossom over the past month and a half has been so satisfying. Especially, after all the trials and tribulations we have been through. First, there was the hail storm that I thought ruined all my hard work. But alas, one plant of each type managed to survive.
Until the lawn crew destroyed them that is. I don’t know for a fact it was their doing, but both times I found plants inexplicably snapped off at their base, it was the same day the grass was mowed. How they managed it, I am unsure… since my plants aren’t on the lawn, and are 2-feet off the ground.
But, these are the same people who manage to leave large swathes of uncut grass in their wake. I’m not trying to tell anyone how to do their jobs, but it seems like if you cut grass for a living you’d be reasonably good at cutting grass.
Cucumbers had to be replanted from seed, as well as the tomatoes. Luckily, cucumbers grow incredibly quickly, so they’re already blooming.
While the much slower growing tomato plant is weeks behind it’s friend cherry tomato.
But, I can comfort myself with the plethora of blooms and tiny tomatoes on my cherry tomato plant in the meantime.
And the most adorable little baby peppers on my pepper plant.
So, how does your garden grow?
