I had to skip a couple weeks of updating you on our garden because of the wedding and honeymoon, obviously. :) So here are pictures from this week.
Everything is growing so well! Even our tomato plants, which I had completely given up on, are making a great comeback. Our early girl tomato plant even has two little red tomatoes that appeared while we were on our honeymoon. Oh, and all that romaine, kale, and spinach? Looks like we'll be eating salads and using my juicer on a regular basis for the rest of the summer.
In case you were wondering, Mallard Fillmore is a little fellow that we found in our shed after we bought the house. Naturally, I had to continue the presidential name theme or Theodore Roosevelt would have been very displeased.
A few questions for those of you who are knowledgable about gardening:
1. How do I stop my cilantro from growing like crazy and get it to actually produce big, usable leaves instead?
2. Is my spinach plant supposed to look like that on the top? Or should I start trimming it or something?
Overall, I'm thrilled with how my little garden is growing! For my very first garden, I'm just relieved that anything sprouted at all, much less this much of it. The only losses so far are 3 out of 4 cucumber plants. The 4th one is barely holding one, so I guess we'll see if it's still around next week. :)
