Here on our property in Port Orchard, Washington, we have many hydrangea bushes, and they come in all sizes and colors - from pure white to purple to yellow, and so forth. This particular bush has some a clear and compelling shade of blue that I just had to share! It's so gorgeous!
My 1st tomatillo harvest! I am so excited to make Pico w them tomorrow! :)
This Lil guy decided to grow outside of his balloon.
If I might share a rookie mistake with ya'll.... I had read about companion planting, and thought, wow what a great way to maximize our limited space this year! Well I didn't do enough research. I planted my carrots under the tomato and bell pepper plants. Now I don't know if they didnt get enough sun, or if the bigger plants are taking all the nutrients, but, I have 3-5ft tops, on 3in carrots! I don't remember my gramma's carrots ever having tops that tall. And she had nice long, plump carrots every year.
I have two of these now! We get one and the chickens get one. :) These are Golden Acted Cabbage, and I am pretty sure I got them from High Mowing Seed. :)
Watering the garden and came across this cute caterpillar. I suppose I should remove him from the garden, but he just looks so content munching on the carrot greens i'll leave him be for while. :)
The tomatillos and yellow pear tomatos are now taller than I am! The other tomato aren't far behind. Lot of balloons on the tomatillos. And all of the tomato have fruit on them except the heirloom pineapple which is still blooming :)
So.....I bought this as a sweet orange bell pepper. It looks very much like a jalapeño to me.....???? Do bell peppers grow this shape? Or did I get a mismarked plant? I'm a new gardener, so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thx!
