The garden: in review

Sometimes, it's really easy to forget how far you've come. Just a few short months back, I had trays of seedlings in the window. Now looky:

Zinnia
Ripening Thai Peppers
Tomato Escalade

 I mean, remember when it looked like this?

Granted, the above picture of the raised bed isn't really the best portrait of how far the little garden has progressed. For one thing, we've picked all the kohlrabi and all but one of the cabbages. Also, all the onions died. I have no idea why.

But just because the onions decided they didn't like the little patch of earth I'd provided for them, that doesn't mean the other seedlings didn't take a liking to our pots and raised beds. Just take a look at these tomatoes. 


Your loss, onions, your loss.

  1. Love the color of that zinnia. Your tomatoes look really good! I have never been able to get good ones growing in pots. Yours look healthy in theirs, must be the fresh air, sun and being lakeside!

  2. Wow, quite the harvest! Bummer about the onions. Our veggie garden didn't do too well this year. My DH forgot to spray them, and the dear had a feast. Ugh! Oh well, next year. We have a raised bed just like that one.

  13. What a beautiful garden. One thing I've learned about gardening over the years is that you can never predict what will do well and what will flop...I'd much rather have lucious ripe tomoatoes than onions any day...altho onions do have their place, just evidently not in your raised beds this year...lol
