Strawberries Pt. 2!


Just look at these strawberries! I'm really proud of them.

It's so exciting to harvest fresh fruit from my container garden for breakfast. And home grown strawberries are always so sweet and delicious. Just look how red they are!

I've been buried under a mountain of work or I would post more, but exciting things are happening in the garden! I've eaten all the carrots, but more are going to be ready soon, and I've been eating a lot of mustard greens which are doing tremendous. Beans are coming along, tomatoes seem to be doing well so far, and flowers are going crazy. I have to remember to photograph more!





I literally squeled when I pulled these out of their pot the other day! Growing root veggies from seed is so exciting, you never know what's going on there until you pull them up and it's like magic! Delicious magic. I've never grown carrots in containers before so I was really excited to try this small, spherical variety. And I'm pleased with the results! I actually have them in a pretty small pot, and I didn't even thin them that much, but they seem to be doing fine. This is especially nice because my radishes ended up not doing so well, they bolted before most of them got bulbs. I'll try them again this fall.
Here is what I did with the little carrots:


I have plenty more in the pot still, and I also have another container going that I started a bit later. Yay root vegetables!
