Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 11

Week 11! I know I sound excited but not as excited as last week. I'm kind of disappointed that here in Newark, NJ, we had three days over 100 degrees. So of course I still went out to make sure my plants were watered after sundown. I still faced the problem with burnt out leaves. Hopefully they will recover and come out stronger than ever.

Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 10

So we are into week ten. We have come a long way since week one. A very long way. I'm just so excited to see progress in all three plots this past week. Plenty has happened. Our cabbage and collards have bigger leaves, the tomatoes are doing well and I finally see one growing on plot 2. I even have a second eggplant starting to bud. The beans in plot 3 are gainng flowers on them as well.

Once again, to all my readers, thank you for faithfully keeping up with my weekly reports. Much love to all of you!

Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 9

Week nine has approached us in the garden. It is amazing how fast time flies by when you're having garden fun. It still amazes me how fast things are sprouting up and maturing. I noticed so many positive changes in all three of the plots. We are so proud of what we are accomplishing. I'm sure my father would be proud of my family, since we feel he was the real gardener in the family.

Some positive changes I am seeing are less holes in my collards and cabbage. I believe this is due to our garlic and pepper mix spray and sprinkling flour on the plants leaves when dry. I heard that helps. In plot one, the peppers and tomatoes are growing bigger, cucumbers are starting to grow from the flowers, the collards are forming bigger leaves and the cabbage are turning over. In plot two, an eggplant is forming as well as two more buds, my cabbage and collards are getting bigger, and now I see flowers on my tall tomato stems. Plot three has the beans and tomatoes both of which are getting taller. We have been using organic fertilizer and this is also the week we feed them plant food. The sun and rain has also been a huge factor as well. Here are some photos of our wonderful progress, some of the photos shot today were done in macro view.

To all my readers, thank you for faithfully keeping up with my weekly reports. Much love to all of you!
