I have excitement from the ol' garden!
First and foremost, MY POTATOES ARE GROWING! (Yes, caps were necessary.)
Aren't they beauteous? I need to plunge my hand in there to figure out how big they're getting. The plants are sure looking sturdy.
There hasn't been much change with the blueberry plant, so no picture.
The trough-like container is flourishing, for the most part. My poor little basil is not enjoying the insane, gale-force winds we've been experiencing. I'm hoping he'll rebound. The mint and parsley are doing well. The arugula is crazy. I've eaten from it twice, and look how bushy it is.
My cilantro seeds are adorable sprouts:
As are my spinach seeds:
And look at my first two snapdragon blossoms! Apparently this plant makes white flowers.
Here's the whole patio area in the way I've rearranged it.
I also bought some marigolds and two tomato plants (Supersweet 100 cherry tomatoes and brandywine, an heirloom slicing variety) to put in the other trough. I plan to put them in this week and then add another tomato plant that I will purchase from Herb Day on Brookside, coming up on April 10.
I still need to plant a couple of squashes (I'm thinking zucchini and pattypan) and my carrots, but I fear I may need to acquire another container. Methinks another trip to Atwoods is in order.
