My Table Top Garden
August is here! In a few short weeks, the children in our school district will be heading back to school. The weather will cool. Autumn will be here. For now, it's still beautiful outside. Spike is out laying by his tree, and I'm enjoying my time in my garage watching Spike enjoy his time outside.
When I planted my table top garden, I wasn't sure what to expect. We had such a cool spring, and, we have had such a cool summer. I think next year, I will wait to plant my garden until later. That's just part of the learning experience. I will use fewer plants in the table top. I will take more pictures to watch their growth. Here's my garden today. It's been planted since May. I've eaten quite a few cherry tomatoes. I just ate the last one today. I'm not sure how many more I'll find in my garden.
So far, no zuchinni or cucumbers, but I have two big tomatoes growing now.
The squash blossoms are beautiful, even though the one zucchini fell off the stem.
This is the biggest cucumber I have!
The herbs are doing just fine though!
All in all, it's been a good experiment!
