the garden

Our garden has grown a ridiculous amount since my last post back at the end of May. Not only do we have this plot in the community garden, I have a tomatillo plant on our patio (these are the green “tomatoes” to make salsa verde!), 2 zucchini plants growing in our neighbors front flower bed, and a trash can full of potatoes! Anthony makes fun of me on the trash can potatoes but all the reading I’ve done says our potato yield will be higher by doing this.

Starting out with our annual patio garden

That is our plot looking on sideways

Our funky yellow squash that still tasted delicious!

Tomatoes are growing!

The one Paris Market carrot I pulled up to see how they were looking (and that’s pretty much full size, they are small and squaty!)

Everything I harvested that day.

Looks great, Kim!

We planted a tomatillo plant as well. Have you found any good verde enchilada recipes? I can’t wait to use ours

I would love to know where you get your gardening info! Where did you find out about the potatoes? I’m glad I didn’t do a garden this year since we are moving next week but I really want to do one next year

I’ve listed the books I’ve read on my goodreads page. Talking Dirt is a really good book, she is witty and makes it enjoyable to read! I believe the Grow Great Grub had the best example of the trash can spuds.

Straight awesomesauce. I am SO envious! We have some sugar snap peas growing, but I wish we had more going on!
