Vegetable Garden & Herbs

Most of our usable land is shaded by tall trees, so I’ve resorted to creating a garden on our wraparound deck. I have a raised planter and a garden bed. It’s been about 2 months since I planted the seedlings, almost all of them are organic Bonnie Plants in organic potting mix, not soil, to help with drainage.

Tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini. Honestly, I had no idea how much these plants would grow. In the future, I would keep them all separate or in the ground. Tomatoes are fine for this bed, but the cucumber climbs like crazy and the zucchini needs more room to spread.patiopickers

John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Apparently it rained while we were away in Michigan last weekend. My herb planter was totally flooded, so I’m a bit anxious if they’ll survive. We also had a huge storm pass through today, too. I just LOVE the scent of these tomato plants, though, maybe more than the produce itself. So in awe of how these plants are growing with little effort on my part.
