Hello everyone! Long time reader, first time poster. Here are some photos of my garden thus far.
This is the first time I have ever planted tomatoes in March. I took a risk this year and planted about a month earlier than normal. Apparently they don't die when night time temps are low 40's.
This is the largest tomato I have so far. Last year was my worst tomato harvest ever. They were only golf ball sized and the plants seemed stunted. Not exactly sure what happened but I have hopes that this year will be better.
I started my jalapeno plants from seed two weeks before the tomatoes. As you can see, they have not grown as much.
Sorry for the slightly blurry photo. I have a jalapeno growing already! Last year was my first year trying these and I got a grand total of 5 peppers from the two plants I grew. This year I've grown 10 plants. I'd like to jar these peppers and eat them through the winter. I'll see how that goes.
Here are my green beans getting started. This year is unique as I did not buy a single seed packet from the store. Last fall I finally realized I could save a few bucks and just save seeds from the end of the season.
And now for the new stuff that I am trying for the first time ever.
I started a few onions from seed back in February. This one has 9 leaves so far. No bulb yet, though. The other two in the photo are just store bought green onions that were used for a meal and I planted the bases to see if they regrow. They do, how 'bout that?
I promised my toddler aged son I would try and grow him a pumpkin for Halloween. I would hate to disappoint him.
Not much to look at, but this is my attempt at a watermelon. I've read that these vines get big so it has a bed all to itself.
I hope to follow up with more photos as things get further along. I'm pleased with my progress so far.
