Update on garden!

So this is my second blog about my above ground garden. All is doing very well! I have gotten to enjoy an Italian white eggplant already, and my yellow bell pepper is coming right along! I was concerned about all the rain that we got a couple weeks ago because my garden is below the roof of a shed and water was literally pooling inside of it, but it drained it out and is thriving! My tomato plant is getting very big, and my zucchini has a beautiful orange flower. I ought to take some pictures.. I’ll work on that! So far I am very content with my garden, and love every single day of seeing it grow. Cheers to gardening!

Finally have my raised garden planted!

Hello! Due to not having internet at my apartment all week I am just finally getting around to blogging about the awesome raised garden that I won! So I went out and got some soil and had to displace all the daddy long leg spiders who had taken residence in the container. I planted a zucchini squash in the top tier of the container so that it can have room to grow out of the container. On the bottom (from left to right) I planted a white eggplant, a yellow pepper, carrots in front, and a tomato plant. I am very excited to see my plants grroooww!! The whole garden is located out in a sunny area behind my apartment. It should get enough light there and won’t be drowned by the automatic sprinklers either. I don’t know how well the tomato will do since it was in a large pot with four other plants and now it has to get used to a new situation, but I will keep you all updated!! Thanks again MasterGardens and 1,000 New gardens! I will get back when there is more to tell!
