Feb 26, 2011 Garden Update…

The Tidy Tips Folia that I sowed 3 days ago are already sprouting…

One of my Mom’s Cymbidium Orchid is just about to bloom.


Some of my Mom’s Alstroemeria were slightly damaged from last night’s frost, so she placed these plastic domes over them, since we are expecting another night of frost.

Sunday Gardening…

Sunday, July 10

Early this morning, I harvested my first cucumbers and eggplant. The huge cucumber in the photo is labeled as Yellow Submarine Cucumber. It hasn’t turned yellow as the tag shows, but that thing is 10 inches, but the tag says 8 inches, so I decided to go ahead and harvest it.

The Sweet 100 Tomatoes are really to harvest, but I’ll do that tomorrow.

Our pruning shears are a bit dull, so I sharped them with a sharpening stone, and they work so much better. I don’t think they ever have been sharpened.

I repotted the Avocado that I “discovered” we had (see yesterday’s post). My mom kindly gave the plant to me :)

I took some pictures around the garden…
