Remember my garden? The one I planted in June? Well, it’s flourishing now!
Here’s what it looked like before…
And here’s what it looks like now!
Look at how tall my basil is getting!! Sersiously, both plants are huge and I’ll never use all this basil. I see lots of pesto and gifts of basil in my future.
And my Vinca has really blossomed. All the plants have flowers now and they are nice and tall without being leggy. I’m very pleased at how hardy this plant has turned out to be. An excellent investment.
Of course, it being my garden, I’ve had some problems. Remember my beautiful sunflowers that were so open and pretty when I bought them?
Yeah, they’re dead now. 🙁 I have no idea what happened? Too much water? Not enough? Too hot? I’ve never grown sunflowers and I’ve heard they can be tricky, so maybe I’m just not cut out for growing them.
Some of my tomatoes are doing really well…
But some of the others are getting big, but showing no signs of turning red. A couple are also looking a little damaged. Any clues as to what is going on and how long it takes for them to turn red?
I also have one plant that is considerably shorter than the others. Four out of the five plants are at least two feet tall and producing lots of flowers, but this one hasn’t grown much at all. Part of the top are dying, and although it has three tomatoes growing on it, I’m concerned because it’s so short and shows little signs of new growth.
So that’s how my garden is doing so far! I’m definitely getting excellent results from the basil and the flowers are gorgeous, but I’m a little concerned about my tomatoes. Any tomato growers out there who can help?
How is your garden growing so far?
