Update 1

This year I started my very first edible garden.  To be honest, it’s the first garden that was more complicated than a simple plant-water-grow garden.  I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how things are going.

There have definitely been mistakes along the way – I planted too close together, and I accidentally picked my watermelon seedlings thinking they were weeds, and I learned the hard way that pumpkin leaves will give you a lovely rash where ever they touch your skin.

We’ve gotten 2 family dinners out of the green beans so far!  They are soooooo yummy and they’re starting to flower again, so I’m looking forward to our next meal.

Miss O loves eating peas right out of the garden.  We probably could have had them for dinner at least once, but I love that she loves them, so I’m just going with it.

The carrots are progressing… I guess.  The problem is this: I have no idea how to know when they’re ready to be picked!  I will have to spend some time with Farmer Google this week.

The tomatoes are still growing.  I think they need to be in a sunnier spot next year…

I have a feeling we’re going to have a ton of heirloom pumpkins this fall!  The suckers are getting big!

The blueberries had a tough time with the transplant, but they’re making a comeback.

Raspberries… someday!

Corn

Like the carrots, I’m not sure how to know when the corn is ready, but there are definitely ears forming.

Flowers

We have flowers coming any day now!  And good news; One of my father-in-law’s roses rooted!  It still looks like a stick, but I’ve been told that if you pull on it and it doesn’t come out, that’s how you know it’s rooted.  I hope they’re right!

My first attempt at an edible garden is going better than I expected. Let's check in on my little seedlings!
