Here is the second harvesting of tomatoes:
This spring, I have been much more diligent in watering and checking on my plants. But even with the attention to that very important detail, the cilantro I planted didn't make it.
Here is our jalapeno pepper plant, but it has yet to produce anything. It has flowers and the flowers stick around for awhile but eventually die or blow away. I'm hoping to see something soon.
Now with the other pots, I have to confess, I am unsure of what all is growing in each pot. From the beginning, I didn't buy a different pot for every seed I had. I wasn't sure how successful I would be so I planted two things in each pot, hoping it would work but not willing to invest any more money than I already had. Here is the first pot, which I know has red peppers in it (hence the red pot), and perhaps some squash and/or zucchini.
And here is the other pot that has beans and either the squash or the zucchini (whichever one isn't in the red pot).
And yes I have 2 of those aqua globes that I found last year in Target's $1 aisle. They semi-work but I still water every day just in case that's not enough. I even asked my friend Amy to water my plants while I was away in Nashville at a work conference a few weeks ago. I'm trying to be very diligent in caring for them in hopes that they will produce a small harvest of food! My only regret is that when Jeremy and I owned a house with a large yard, I never bothered planting anything, not even a shrub.
