Harvest Updates & Big News!

I had two great harvests this week...
8.19 Big cucumbers and lots of Sugar Snap Peas & Sweet 100 tomatoes!

8.16 First Jet Star tomatoes & Mandarin Hybrid pepper*
unfortunately, the pepper looked perfect, but had lots of worms inside-i was very sad!!

Other news...

My Sugar Snap Peas growing sky high!

Cabbage heads are forming!

The Big News....
My garden is growing in a different way!! The small, vacant and overgrown plot next to me is now mine! It was offered to me over the weekend! The FVG can not find someone to take the 'plot.' I gladly accepted it but am still trying to figure out what to do with the space. My initial thoughts...adding another SFG box or creating a shaded area with a chair/table. Here is what the space looks like now...I see lots of weeding in my future...again!!

Hi Liz!
Congratulations on your harvest! Too bad about your pepper... it looks fantastic... : (

You know... I remember your early photos of what your plot looked like BEFORE your SFG... what a transformation!!! Guess you impressed the powers that be!

What ever you decide to plant in your extra space... I know that it will be beautiful!

I'm wishing that I planted a whole 4x8 bed of carrots!!!!! I could eat them every single day!
