I planted lots of goodies in my raised garden bed. Things were going great...until about 3 weeks ago. I noticed my tomato plants not looking so good. The tomatoes that were growing were striped and a lot of their leaves were turning spotted and brown. I googled some problems that are native to our area and talked to a local farmer. The farmer said we need to pull those plants and start all over again. Seriously? Am I going to make this work? Yes, I am!! I'm going to keep trying.
So, I pulled them up and planted three more plants. Hopefully these will do better.
The other plants in my garden are taking off very nicely!! My peppers are growing a beautiful green!
My eggplant is flowering its gorgeous lavender blooms. I love eggplant and hope we have plenty! And my cucumbers are doing awesome! Yay!
One thing that is doing very well is my pot out front of the house. I had bought some clearanced and dying plants at Lowes. I know. Me of all people to buy dying plants to revive. But, I planted the Dusty Millers and they are taking off!! I've even divided some of them into other pots. Unbelievable! Maybe I can do this!
And then I bought a new plant that I'm hoping will take off....lavender. I would love to have a garden full of lavender! We'll see how it goes!
And just because my sweetie loves me, he bought me 2 gorgeous ferns for our front porch. They are so beautiful!
So, the gardening adventure continues! Hopefully I'll eventually have posts of my bounty of veggies. But for now, I'll keep watering and praying and watching. This really is great fun!
