It’s been four months since we first constructed then planted our first DIY Container Garden. All I can say is: Welcome to the Jungle!
Seriously. I am not sure if it’s our not-usually green thumbs or all the Kricket Krap we spread before planting but our tomato plants have totally taken over our little 4’x8′ garden.
Once upon a time The Kid Created Garden Trellis the boys made looked like this…
The smaller plants at the base of the tall, leggy tomatoes are struggling to find their place in the sunshine. The squash is determined to grow but the dill is long dead. Luckily we are harvesting a ton of Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes.
On the other side of the garden are green peppers and jalapeños. We are loving these truly low maintenance plants. All they need is a little water and lots of hot sunshine!
There’s also a few very sad cucumber plants. At least I think this is a cucumber? I’m not sure what we are doing wrong with these sad, yellow, and weirdly shaped things.
As always the children love helping to pick our “crops”.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see how our garden is growing! Wishing you a ton of delish, fresh veggies from your garden or local market!
Your comments totally make my day! They give me huge motivation to keep creating and having fun with my 3 Little Greenwoods!
I link up with these fun parties!
