Vegetable Garden - 2014 #4: Two Months and Counting...

07-29-2014 11:08 AM by littlecope | 2 comments »

So the second month after planting came and went on the 24th… Here was the growth after one month, and at the two month mark last week… We’ve been enjoying a side dish of Green Beans once or twice a week for about a month, and Radishes aplenty… Only a trickle so far from the Cherry Tomatoes (and none from the Big Boys), even though the plants are loaded! We’ve got a varmint problem, as I first discovered with the Pumpkin Plants… Something has been...
