It's that time of the year again! Time for me to use that awful graphic to the left. This is the third year in a row where I have had a vegetable garden. I feel like a seasoned pro. Back in Bermuda, we could plant whenever we felt like it. Here in new england I wanted to plant a week and a half ago. It was beautiful for about 3 weeks and I thought it would be fine. Then it dropped to 30 degrees out of nowhere, and went back to 75 the next day. I guess I forgot about Spring in New England! The plants finally went into the ground yesterday and I am pretty comfortable that the weather will cooperate. There are a few things nice about not gardening in Bermuda though. Here I can put things in the ground(instead of containers) and have way more plants. Also there is better selection at the store here. I have a bunch of plants that I have never grown before! Including heirloom tomatoes, celery, and scallions!
Basil in a container.
Also some other herbs. I like the herbs in a container cause you can keep it closer to the door.
Thats a lot of plants!
Lookin pretty good all planted.
Lots of Jalapenos.
Celery. Does anyone know if I will get celeriac from this?
I think i got ripped off on this arugula cause it looks weird. I have grown it before and it looked totally different.
A nice flower on the chives that came back from last year.
Speaking of coming back from last year, The brussel sprouts never really grew enough to give any food last year, then they seemed to die over the winter, then they started growing again this year. I looked online and it said they come back each year, but didnt really say if you actually get veggies off them the second year. I kinda dont think we will because they look funny. Does anyone know the deal with these things?
They are weird cause the new plants are growing out of the old dead looking ones. They are also flowering already.
