It was a nice run, but my fall tomatoes finally said goodbye. Low's in the 20's and 30's with high's in the mid-50's did them in. Don't feel too bad for us, it's mid-January and we're stocked with tomatoes! The cool thing is I'll be starting my spring tomatoes inside in about 2 weeks! Sweet! These pictures above show my tomatoes last week, and............gone this week.
Celery & Brussels spout. Not only have I never grown these veggies before, I've never even seen them grown before! Actually I've never seen most of the veggies I'm growing grown before.......thanks to the modern day grocery store! (speaking of modern day grocery stores....do you remember back in the 70's & 80's, before scanners, when the cashiers memorized all the prices and typed them into a cash register? lol!) So I don't always know how the plants are doing since I don't really know what they look like when they grow. The down side of being a green horn! I do believe both of these plants have suffered from a lack of sun.
I can grow a mean crop of green manure though!
The last of the fall garden- 4 cabbage left and a raised bed of onions. The family didn't dig the cabbage as much as I expected. I think these cabbage have been growing for about 5 months (including inside under the lights)! I'm looking forward to them getting out of the way.
The onions on the other hand, we can't wait. Again I've never grown onions before and I'm hoping they got enough sun.
The new guys to the garden, potatoes, beets and some radish. Just planted these around Christmas. Hate to be a broken record but............never grown these either! I'm kinda excited for some potatoes.
My first compost bin. I'm such an enviromentalist!
And finaly a quick crop of 40 broccoli pants on the way. I'm going to plant them where the tomatoes were.
They need to grow quick......I want to plant my spring garden the 1st week of March!
