Response I love this article. It just makes me feel cooler thinking about how cool you'll be in the kitchen, literally. After work days during the summer I do not want to be slaving over a hot oven or stove all the time. I also don't have a large appetite to really cook much either. I love fruits and veggies so why not chill out to a nice healthy cool salad. My mom always make the most creative salads in the summertime. This past week she made crab meat salad. Yum! Plus being that I'm growing vegetables in my community garden plots, maybe they can come to some use as well. I definitely would love to try some of these recepies soon and when I do I will post my reviews.

Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 7

This is week seven already. Time is flying by so fast. Before you know it, it will be time to pick them for a feast. Well maybe not a big feast but close enough. This is a very great journey that I'm having so much fun doing. I'm also excited that I am now starting to see progress since I used the organic fertilizer last week. Yesterday I was able to place some more plant food on them. It really does help, well so far so good. In plot 1, more peppers are sprouting as well as tomatoes. Plot 2 is gaining a flower on the eggplant plant. We also added a third box to the mix, which has beans and tomatoes.

Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 6

Hey guys! This is week 6 already here in the community garden. There are some things about these plots that bother me. When I look at each row in the plot, they look like they fight for water because there is one growing so nicely. This leaves the other struggling. Then I see holes in my eggplant leaves, so I know there are bugs still eating my plants. I still see no tomatoes growing, yet I do see an eggplant flower growing. Other than those things I do see sort of slow progress. This was also the week I add more plant food to the plots like I first started doing during week 4, but instead I was given organic plant food from the conservancy. I sprinkled it around the plants then watered them. The conservancy also brought by a gardening tool trunk and some supplies to use.

Mom's Garden: Progress

My mom's garden in the front yards has been blossoming and blooming very well lately. We've added some more Petunias and Marigolds out. Then there's a purple Petunia plant that my mom received for Mother's Day last year that was dying, now it's has bloomed very well since she put it outside. Then the solar lights look beautiful at night.
