Our garden has now been planted for about 6 weeks. Things are really starting to get exciting! I am learning so much as we go. Our tomatoes are doing great-we have lots of little green tomatoes growing and ripening, our peppers were doing great...until Crush figured out how to get around the chicken wire fence Brian built. We are hoping to still get some peppers off the couple of plants that survived. We reinforced the fence-hopefully it will keep the garden-Crusher out! Our basil is doing pretty well, but the tomatoes have grown so big that they are blocking the sun from getting to the basil. Next year we will plant the basil somewhere else. Our parley, dill, chives, and cilantro seem to be doing well. My cinnamon basil and stevia is doing great! Sadly, my chocolate mint and chamomile never germinated:( I am so disappointed about that! Our hibiscus plants are all doing great as well as some of the other flowers. I am learning which flowers I like in my little garden and which are not worth the effort to me. The flower beds look a little wild right now. The sweet potato vine is taking over! I really need to cut some stuff back, I think. So far, everything has went pretty well and I have had so much fun learning and growing!
