But look at it now!
Bit of a change don't you think?
Well I promised you some pics of the new plants and the progress that has taken place so far... so here it is!
Baby Watermelon! These are supposed to grow baby watermelon that are orange on the inside. I have never grown watermelon before and I am more than alittle worried about the humidity here in summer, but hey, it's my garden and I will grow watermelon of I want to! They are only suppsed to grow to 1 meter as well... which will be good for my restricted space :)
Baby Thai Egplant. This little cutie is supposed to grow little pale purple eggplant balls
This is one of the lettuce's I planted in the begining, sure are growing well know!
This is the 'baby tomato' that I showed you a photograph of before, she is still the smallest of the 4 but she sure has grown! You can also see the greek basil I have interdispersed between my plants
This is my first tomato flower! Since they are cherry tomatoes I shouldn't have to wait to long for my first tomatos!
This is a baby zucchini, it is an unusual striped Italian variety that is suppsed to have lots of flowers. The seeds come from Frateli Fresh, my fav grocery store.
Baby Cucumber, this is another Italian variety from Frateli Fresh. It is supposed to be good for eating, pickling and be a really long fruiter as well!
This is a flower from my apple cucumber, which is completly covered in flowers BTW.
This is the most exciting progress though, a baby cucumber!!! Hopefully it wont be too long til I get to enjoy this little one.... mmmmm apple cucumber and butter sandwhiches ;)
Since, you guys all know my love of flowers I had to include this psychadelic little beauty. It is a lobelia flower from some lobelias my Oma gave to me :)
I hoped you enjoyed the progress my little garden is making..... I will keep you informed.
P.S. Perhaps I should say that I am trying to grow my garden as orgaincally as possible, the only fertilizer I have used (which was very badly needed) was cow manure, mushroom compost, poulrty manure and fish emulsion. Does anyone have any other recommendations?
