pics of my plants

the garden after about 1 month

everyone's not in their permanent homes - the cherry tomato is moving to the upper right corner and i think lavender seedlings will go in its place. the beet is the lone survivor of 9...i'm not sure what happened to its friends =(

i started the cherry tomato, carrots, cilantro, basil, chard, cucumber, and radishes (which were previous tenants of the basil's new spot) from Botanical Interests organic seeds. every seed i have planted from them has sprouted! on the other hand, the beet seeds were from lowe's. lowe's blows. =)

(as i said in previous posts, my mom started the tomatoes, my friend missy gave me pepper and eggplants, the oregano was from a co-worker of missy's, and the flowers and lettuce were all transplants from Bloomer's, a local nursery.)

soon john will be making us a trellis for the cukes and tomatoes, we will have cages for the eggplant and pepper, and a vine for the sugar snap peas (which aren't looking so hot - anyone have an idea why the bottom leaves are turning yellow? have i deprived them of a vine for too long???)

did you see, i have a bloom on my tomato plant? =)

check out my strawberries, lookin' all cute!

flowers we have out front, to greet guests and the mailman...

and a hanging basket of violas and impatiens (whose parents lived at my mom and stepdad don's house last year near the shore - she collected the seeds and started them in her house this past winter. now they're city flowers =)

that pink flower is the first bloom of the bunch (of about 400 plants!) i'll bet it was the mel's mix...


  1. Kelli,

    Everything is looking so good. You are doing a great job!


  2. They all look awesome, and I am so jealous that I didn't do my garden this year. I really wanted to do it...if I don't do it next year I think that I will die. P.S. We are still down for the Areogarden though if you have it, I could get it this week from you if you think you will be around! Gotta start somewhere right?!
