Garden Update

I can’t believe how long it has been since I have been on this blog. Sad really.
It has been really hot here (already). *sigh* I can’t imagine what it will be like in summer. This week it will be in the high 80’s with no rain in sight. The humidity will be ugly too. Now that you’ve had a weather report, let’s get to my little container garden.
My tomatoes are lacking also. If anyone might know why, please let me know. They are pretty but for some reason they look like they are getting ready to give up.

The herbs seem to be doing really well though. I have used them in quite a few recipes lately; especially the Thyme. That has got to be my all time favorite herb. The Hunan peppers (in the back) are coming back too. I thought they might be long gone, but they are making an effort. I still want to get more herbs. I just love them.

The lavender is making a great comeback as well. If you look closely, it looks like it is getting a few tiny blooms.

Radishes aren’t doing so well, but it is probably too hot for them. The Oregano still needs to be ‘cleaned’ up and I am going to do that today. The Strawberries are alive and producing small little berries but they aren’t really sweet so I let the birds have them.

The green beans are doing pretty well. You can’t see it in the picture but the vine is going all the way up to the top of the trellis. I can’t wait to get beans!

That’s it for around here. Click on the badge below to join up to the Barn Hop! There are so many interesting things to read about and learn!

Have a blessed week!


  1. It looks like everything is growing and going well! LOL!

  2. I love using containers for gardening! I actually have quite a few that I put veggies in every year. They are my fail safe :-) I think your tomatoes look like they have had either uneven watering, or not enough water. When you have tomatoes in containers and it is hot you need to make sure you water often. In the height of summer here in Maine (ie, 85-90 degrees) I water twice/day. Once in the morning before the sun comes up and once at night after the sun has started to go down - so that the water doesn't just evaporate. I have had better luck with tomatoes in the self watering containers than in regular pots.

    1. I thought they were getting enough water, but maybe not. It has been hot here lately though. Thanks!!!
