Over the weekend, I decided to make some changes in the garden. I needed to replace some plants that had died, and some that never matured.
Here’s the before photo of the garden:
As you can see, the tomatoes are thriving. The oregano and parsley are also doing well. But on the left side, the peppers and cucumbers aren’t as happy as they should be.
(The Zinnias at the base of the planters are starting to take off after being planted from seed.)
In between the cucumbers (far left) and the peppers are several tiny beet sprouts. They’ve remained sprouts like that for the last couple of months. Which means I planted them way too late – they prefer cooler weather.
It was time for them to be replaced by vegetables that like the heat. Like this little cutie:
And more of these little guys:
Muuuuuch better. They may be a little crowded, but I like to think of them as one big happy family, haha!
Now the garden looks like this:
(By the way, that container in front of the garden has the chayote sprouts – they are slowly growing, hanging in there.)
