I did NOT stick to the plan.
You might remember this…
its my overly ambitious garden plan and yet even this was not enough for me!
I’ve had everything in the ground for over two weeks now and most everything looks great but I was getting impatient waiting for the cucumbers, bell peppers and a few other things to come up. Yesterday it poured rain and today I have brand new baby cilantro, bell peppers and cucumbers!
Before visiting the garden today I had an appointment in town, while there my Grandma and I with all four kids just happened to take a walk to a garden store of all places. Now I’m sure you all know that was not planned! We just had to walk off our large helpings of ice cream and who would have known there is a great garden shop just a few blocks from Grandma’s house? Oh dear, how many veggies can I carry? Well, I’ve got three kids who walk on their own and the two of us that makes five new plants right?
I did get two of the one thing I was looking for. Now that’s an interesting anomaly. I really wanted to try eggplant this year even though I’m doubtful if I will like the texture. Most people I have asked suggested getting a unique variety not the long Japanese type since I’m picky. So of course when they had two different types I had to try one of each.
Wouldn’t you know they also had Early Girl Tomato’s. I neglected to plant one this year and couldn’t pass her up. Not to mention I’ve got five other tomatoes in my garden! ACK! Thank goodness the cilantro came up. Can you guess what everyone is getting for Christmas? Canned salsa… you know you want some!
I also found a cute little plant that claims it is a deer resistant, drought tolerant and vigerous growing variety of ornamental rasberry. Ooh, I couldn’t resist!
