|Our backyard pond -where have all the fishies gone?|
I also wanted to share with you two of my container garden projects. Here in FL our big garden season in right now in the winter. Those snow birds make out the best - they get to eat fresh veggies here in the winter and then again when they are up north in the summer. I am starting to think about becoming a snow bird sooner than later...
I planted these two containers many months ago from seeds! Yes, seeds. Lettuce seems to grow very well here, but these seeds took a very long to germinate. We did get some very cold spells this winter which may explain the delays. My veggies are just a month or two later than expected based on the seed package.
|Lettuce grown from seeds!!!|
This container is broccoli, also grown from seeds. This one took even longer than the lettuce (which by the way has spawned new little lettuce plants!). I was very nervous using seeds for the first time, last year I went to the store and bought starter plants, so I didn't thin this out when I should have. As a result, the plants look bolted and are reaching up to have space. We'll see how they continue to grow.
|Broccoli... this one isn't looking as normal.|
