We have a small back yard, but we love fresh veggies.
Everything we plant is in raised beds or containers – and of course they have to be dog proofed to keep our 73-lb. Labradoodle from digging or harvesting before we do!
This morning I took a tour to see how things are doing:
future pesto (basil)
yellow sweet peppers
Japanese black truffle tomatoes (will get purple colored when ripe)
Because of space we also trellis all of our vine plants. Cucumbers do fine on their own.
Melons, on the other hand, need a little help because of their eventual size and weight. That is where my fabric stash comes in handy! I make “hammocks” for each melon. 🙂
Love the tastes of summer!
Until next time,
Happy Quilting (and gardening)!
