Thank you again to Uncle Larry for caring for the plants and the dogs this time around! I didn't bring back any new vegetable plants, but I did manage to find some Jiffy Pellets and a Jiffy Pellet greenhouse. I am hoping to get a jump start on the season by starting seedlings in the house in March/April.
We came home to our Gay Zucchini Alliance, which is apparently out of the closet. Still no female flowers on this plant. Jason has a few cherry tomatoes coming along and he is waiting for them to ripen all together. And my cucumber is looking pretty good, it is about 3-4 inches and looks like an OK cucumber shape. I am hoping that I did a good enough job hand pollinating.
Inspired by Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and in memory of my grandfather - We are trying out our collective "green thumbs"!
Our goal is to grow some of the salad vegetables that we consume on a daily basis and supplement that with produce from the local farmers markets.
