Archive for the ‘Container Gardening’ Category

Since March sneaked up on me, I realized that the time to start putting things in the ground (container) was just a matter of weeks away.  So off to the hardware store I went returning with some seedling mix and peat moss containers.  First attempt with growing directly from seeds by the way. Last year’s container gardening, at least with the tomatoes was a failed attempt.  The bloom rot just couldn’t let me be.  I had some type of Thai Pepper seeds left over and purchased some Habernero seeds.  I also planted some Cream Sausage Tomato and Husk Cherry Tomato seeds, which came from some produce I purchased at a local farmer’s market.  Also included is some Cilantro, but the seeds are a few years old, so who knows if anything will occur. Now I just need to get my hands on some Roma Tomato seeds so that I can make salsa.  Of course I’m clueless as to where to put all of this should it actually grow.

As we trudge through this hot and humid summer, I thought I would post updates on our attempts at container gardening.  Although we only have a few and would have surely starved to death by now, there is something empowering about being someone with no green thumb, yet growing food.  Hopefully one day we can transition from containers to an actual garden.  I haven’t been able to harvest anything yet, but hopefully in the next week.

Romas

You guessed it, these are Roma Tomatos from which I hope to make salsa with.  Unfortunately, I’ve thrown many away due to a type of rot at the base.  I can’t seem to get it to stop.

Tarragon with some Dill in the back.  The Dill is doing really good.

Rosemary, which I love to describe as Christmas in July.  I actually cut off a fairly large portion of it and this is what was left over.  Yummy!

Mystery hot pepper.  I’ve managed to pick off one red one which had a wonderful spicy sweet taste.  They’re hot green too, but just taste…well…green.

The habeneros.  So excited about these as I plan to make my first attempt at pickling with them.

Mystery tomatos given to me by my neighbors, any ideas?
