Gardening

Rain is the best for the crops and flowers. @HonnyBrown, we had Basil coming out of our ears last year. Smelled so good and the entire neighborhood was supplied. @heather shops, I love cilantro. Going to try next year.

The basil seeds are sprouting in the tomato pot. I have no clue what's happening with the mint. I think the cilantro is sprouting as I saw a bit of green.

I got some pine nuts in anticipation of the basil sprouting.

I pruned my big spider plant. My fiddle leaf fern is sprouting a new leaf.

I set my potted oregano and lucky bamboo in a glass plants outside to benefit from the rain. It's time to prune the oregano.

I have beets, peas and green beans growing so far. It is raining today so tomorrow I'll ride my bike up to the garden to check. smiling smiley
I have a tomato!

I was looking at the sad flowers on the tomato plant and BAM! A Roma sized tomato!

The basil and cilantro are filling out.

I have a cherokee purple tomato!!!! lots of yellow beans. I bought some basil and oregano too. Cilantro went to seed but I'm still picking it. smiling smiley
Hubby's little herb kit is producing... something! I think those are probably kitchen herbs. And, he is remembering to water the recently planted flower seeds. This is good in our world.

I bought a fiddle leaf fern and a sad little snake houseplants.

The fern is from a nursery and doing quite well, much to my surprise.

The snake plant is a little happier. It has a new sprout peeking through the dirt.

I moved the cilantro pot to a different side of the deck. I checked on it yesterday after Tuesday's rain. The weedy looking shoots have cilantro shaped leaves growing out of them.

I picked a tomato. It was the shape of a beefsteak. It was mostly green with shades of red.

I have my watermelon plants and pepper plants in the same whiskey barrel container. My pepper plants are big and bushy. The watermelon plants are growing, but not spreading across the balcony floor.

When I watered the plants this morning, I noticed the melon climbing up the pepper. It made its own trellis.

I put a cage around my pepper plants to give the watermelon plants something to climb. I snapped the main pepper plant. I hope it recovers.
