About this blog

With the generous help of my grandma, I am spending this spring and summer learning how to garden
by plunging in headfirst. This blog is a narrative of my adventures.

Checking In

I've been rather busy of late so I haven't even visited my vegetables for about two weeks, let alone done any gardening. Today I managed to stop by and see how things are doing. I'm afraid I found the lower garden in a worse state than when I last saw it. The few peas and broccoli that had been clinging to life are gone and I only see three scraggly little onions. Grandma says if the foliage is healthy then the edible part underneath the soil is fine too, but I don't know if they're going to hold out much longer.

The upper garden, on the other hand, is very happy. I need to do some weeding and replace the leaf bed under the tomatoes, but everything is growing well. The heat is favoring the eggplants and peppers, as you can see from this eggplant:
 The carrots are growing like weeds as well, and there are bunches of green tomatoes, some round and some pear-shaped.
While it's turned out to be a much smaller operation than I originally intended, it's still going well, all things considered.
