So it’s kind of really upsetting to talk about it still, but all of my 13 different types of tomato seedlings, died on friday. More or less I murdered them, by not planting them on Tuesday, or Wednesday, or thursday when I
could’ve should’ve. I’m still really upset. My response to this, was planting the seeds I had leftover directly into the garden on Saturday morning, and hoping they’ll grow. I’m still really disappointed I let that happen. But regardless of this terrible occurence some things in the garden are doing pretty well.
My zucchini plants are HUGE! And I already have zucchini flowers on all three. 5-6 zucchini flowers total. And I am resisting the urge to eat them just like that, so instead I’ll have actual zucchini in about 2-3 weeks. YUMMY!
The beets and the carrots are growing bigger and bigger. I love root veggies, eating and growing them. Have I told you it’s like finding buried treasure? Because that’s what I equate growing root veggies to.
Putting aside the tomato
murder tragedy, the volunteer tomato plants already in the garden are pretty big! AND they have flowers too- but I have no idea how long it’ll be before they are actual tomatoes from the flowers because I don’t have a clue as to what type of tomatoes they are. I remain excited nonetheless.
Also our peach tree has a ton of baby peaches on it! Let’s hope we can get to the ripe ones before the
squirrels nasty evil creatures do this summer. Fresh peaches are my favorite, when they’re so ripe and juicy, they make your whole face sticky.
Also I forgot to grab a picture of it and I don’t want to go outside to do it, but all three types of beans have flowers! Huzzah! As well as the cucumbers, who are refusing to grow up the trellis I put next to them causing my dad had to tie them to it with twine (lame). Naughty cucumbers!
How’s your garden growing?
P.S. How cute is the bubba with his little stuffed twin?
