So our first go around at a vegetable garden didn’t work out as planned. Only a few of our seedlings survived the cold weather.
After a few weeks of rain and cold, our garden looked like this:
All of the seedlings except for our sweet corn and some of our herbs didn’t survive. We were also left with a lot of tiny weeds.
To replace our failed seedlings, I bought a selection of mature vegetables and some garden soil from the Home Depot. These vegetables (and technically “fruits”) came in really neat biodegradable pots that you can plant straight into the ground. To learn more about the biodegradable pots and how to plant them, check out the Bonnie Web site.
In addition to the mature plants, I also planted new green bean and red pepper seeds. I planted the seeds in garden soil in hopes that the rich soil will produce better results.
Our sweet corn stalks are doing really well despite a few cold days. The stalks are getting pretty tall compared to when we planted them.
How are your summer gardens going?
Before I wrap up this post, did you notice anything different about our photos? I’m working on some upgrades to Frame By Frame Style and this is the debut of our new photo tag. Hope you like it!
