Victory Garden 2k17: Update #2

Happy Saturday!

Have you heard about this {NSFW!!!!} silliness?

Today is “World Naked Gardening Day”…and I assure you I will not be participating in the naked part. I’m actually not doing much gardening at all today, but I am going to give you some new peeks of my back porch plant menagerie!

Here is a full view of the garden after the last plant/transplant.

The drawer on the floor in front is another start of lettuce. This is another variety called “Black Seeded Simpson” from the Livingston Seed Company. I’m trying to start new lettuce about every two weeks so we will have SO MUCH salad!

All sorts of seedlings! In the front left in the seed starter (and plastic box) are cucumber starts. Behind the cucumbers in the 6-pack and box are tomato starts. To the right are a mystery. I *THOUGHT* they were tomato seeds when I planted them…but they look like peppers to me. They will remain a mystery until fruit shows up–should be interesting! I’ve got my fingers crossed that they’ll be a sweet pepper. If not, we may be experimenting with making hot sauce!

The three plants in the back are tomatoes. Early Girl,  Mr. Stripey, and Yellow Pear. I wanted to get a couple of plants that are a few weeks ahead of the ones I started from seed. I’m already getting impatient for my tomatoes to start producing–I am so excited for all these new varieties I’ve got!

In the windowsill: romaine & green onions!

Even if you don’t have room for a garden you have GOT to try this technique! I started doing this over the winter when I was SO READY for garden season. It is so rewarding to grow food from what is literally a throw away. I paid 79 cents for a bunch of green onions that I’ve harvested two times now. Here is a great tutorial on how to do it!

Are you gardening naked today? 😄
