My garden is growing and I am so excited! I didn’t do very much to prepare for my tiny garden and it is surprising me and to think if I had prepared better or a bigger plot the bounty I could grow, I am thinking more about expanding my garden going into fall. It is more inspiring and I am enjoying gardening more than I imagined! I’ve always enjoyed gardening but have thought I can’t fit it into my busy schedule but amazingly it hasn’t been that difficult to squeeze in the time to garden. I’m getting behind on weeding but we are currently in a heat wave and so weeding my garden will have to wait. It’s all I can do is to be outside long enough to water, and I’m having to water at least twice a day and may water three times a day if needed. I have to share a few more photos and I definitely have a white pumpkin growing, I planted seeds of both white and orange pumpkins. 🙂
I also have cucumbers growing and I hope the pumpkins don’t over power the cucumbers but they are holding their own. I’ve seen some very tiny cucumbers and will see how well they grow. This heat which I’ve mentioned already is horrible, but its a little cooler today and we now have cloud cover and we are experiencing some thunder and lightning. Very monsoonal weather, and even though its 106 degrees right now the plants don’t look withered like they did yesterday. I may water a little later one more time as this heat will stay for a few more days. Crazy summer heat! YIKES!
My tomatoes are coming along and getting taller and the heat isn’t bothering them as much which I’m thankful for and the plant on the right of this photo is blueberry. I wanted to move the blueberry to another container but I think I’ll leave it for now and decide later. These photos are from the last week, and every day I go out to water the vines on the pumpkins and cucumbers get longer and longer. I’m having to guide them a bit but it is so cool to see them grow. I get so excited over the little things in life and watching something grow from seed is amazing. Here is a photo of the seed sprouts!
Isn’t that just so cool when you compare and see how huge the plants have gotten! Some of the pumpkin leaves are GIANT! Haha, so darn fun. I’m really hoping for some nice looking pumpkins! and some tasty cucumbers!! If you don’t garden, try a container garden and if you are lucky and have lots of room and have a great big garden I envy you as gardening and its yields are very rewarding. Thank you for visiting and reading my blog. I so enjoy sharing and hope you are enjoying my tiny garden too! ❤
