I know I have not been posting lately. I have been working on a knit project that I have been contracted to knit. No details till the designer releases the project.
Here is the main garden. I have added new plants since I expanded my garden.
Most of the plants in this area were planted last fall. (Cabbage, Strawberries and Onion). I have beans and peas in small pots.
The new plant that has some height is a brussel sprouts plant. I saw my first flowers from this plant today.
These are mostly tomatoes and peppers. I tried to start cucumbers from seeds, but I saw later in the day that I'm not sure the seeds survived transplant.
Here is mint from last fall. I do have some mint I had growing at work that came home.
This is my experimental garden. I have Matter Root plants growing here. Over winter break I took all the roots out for one of my Guild members. She will be using these for our dyeing event later this year. She let me keep a few roots that had sprouts on them. I later planted there in here, because they take over where ever they grow. Some of the sprouts from the roots are growing.
I tried to plant a live Christmas Tree, but it was not doing well. I found a small pine over the weekend that is suppose to not need a lot of water or maintenance. I hope to be growing it for a small Christmas Tree next year for decorating outside.
Approximately on this day, (The Day after MLK Holiday), Twenty-Nine years ago, I left to go to Boot Camp for the U.S. Navy. I was suppose to report early Monday morning, but Monday was a holiday, so I had to report on Tuesday. I remember recognizing a classmate that day who was going to Army Boot Camp. I left Phoenix, and arrived in Great Lakes, IL very early that day. With very little sleep, we didn't get to barracks till the next night.
Here is my garden today. The cabbage on the left is still growing. The strawberries still seem to be holding out too.
Here is a picture I took from my Starbucks of the mountains:
We have had a few good storms to give the mountains snow, but it has also dropped temps in the city.
If you look carefully at this picture, you will see frost on the leaves of the cabbage. This seems to be a very good batch of plants, as normally my garden is finished by now.
I invested in a new camera. My Canon Rebel XT has been replaced with a Canon Rebel T6i. The two big differences, it a touch screen and Wi-Fi ability. I can use the my Wi-Fi and download pictures directly to my iPhone. I'm able to keep my zoom lens, and some of my old filters.
