Time for an update on my garden experiments and my attempt to grow as much of our food in our small city yard.
Remember I was going to attempt to grow potatoes in a large pot. Here they are last month.
Look at them now. They are huge. When the plants start to die back I will see what I have in there.
Remember the celery ends I planted. One died but another is doing fine. I have even started some by seed which is exciting as I have read it is hard to germinate.
There's those baby stalks now.
Now here is my continuing frustration, my grape vine. I planted it four years ago and I still have not seen any grapes or any sign of them. I have asked the nursery and they said it takes a few years but I am losing my patience with it. I WANT GRAPES.
See the little vine starting up in the pot? That is the sweet baby watermelon I am attempting to grow from a pot. It can ramble through the planter but the soil is poor here. I just mulched it with some home made compost. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
