My Tiny Garden is Growing Fast!

I can’t believe how the pumpkins and cucumbers are taking off! They were started from seed and with little work they are flourishing. I am having a great time tending to my garden and I am able to water the roses in my garden which have been neglected through the years. It turns out roses need a lot of water, and so in watering them I’m rewarded with wonderful blooms, the roses are so very beautiful! Here are more photos of my tiny veggie garden, and a photo or two of my tea rose blooming. 😀

We have plans on a draught resistant front yard. You can see a blank slate beyond these roses where there was nice grass which over the years has died out. For now, we have palm trees, some rose bushes, and a few other plants growing near the house. And of course my tiny veggie garden. If I do well, I may expand it and do more. Hmm… maybe I will look into some winter veggies to grow. That would be fun too. I’ve never grown through the winter ending in the fall and then beginning again the next spring. I’m so enjoying gardening, I forgot how it makes you feel being outdoors, so alive puts a huge smile on my face and in my heart and getting down in the dirt and enjoying the sunshine or the weather what ever it may be on a given day!

In this small container are my peas, bell peppers and my tomatoes. The peas and tomatoes are coming along but the bell peppers are slow and if they don’t grow, that’s okay, it is still fun to see everything sprout. I’m not giving up yet on the bell pepper’s, but they are growing very slowly right now. I also have a blueberry plant which I will be re-potting in its own container maybe with more blueberries. I haven’t decided yet, but this container I think is too small for the blueberry plant.

I’ve grown pumpkins and a lot of squash before. I’ve never grown cucumbers but figured they are similar. My men in my family are not fond of squash or zucchini so that’s why I chose the cucumber. And who doesn’t love pumpkins! I know my granddaughter will enjoy the pumpkins and I planted seeds that will grow white and orange pumpkins, can’t wait to see what we grow!! These photos are from last weekend and I took another photo today, three days later and you can see the pumpkins are growing, the vines are getting longer each day.  I have been watching and reading others with their gardens and it’s so much fun to see all the wonderful photos, I hope you enjoy my tiny garden! Thanks for visiting! ❤
