Nothing yet from the tomatoes, so I planted a bunch more seeds. Lesson: don't put whey (from cheesemaking) in your garden if you have dogs. Whey is acidic and excellent for tomatoes, but dogs LOVE whey.
|We have no tomatoes today.|
Potatoes! From my friend Jenny. You can see where I labeled them on the pallet. I love that about the pallets.
My cilantro from seeds - has a little baby sprout.
My wildflower memorial garden for Pedro and Sheila. I also put some oregano I got at HEB in there.
And beautiful lettuce and squash.
I really like this pallet with its three sections.
|Romaine Lettuce - |
it looks like lettuce now!
|Mystery squash - |
won't know until it produces which kind it is.
|Pickling cucumbers - notice the label.|
little baby basil sprouts
something was eating on this cabbage
One thing about the garden is that since it's above ground, it needs lots of water. I think the pallet helps to shade and keep some of the water from evaporating unlike in a fully open bed. With the drought in TX, I hope these guys will hold on and grow! Granted, I got drought resistant varieties of all that I could get.
That's my update. Enjoying my little pallet garden. It's really low maintenance.
