Good morning or afternoon, let’s have a virtual drink. I’m in the mood for some icy cold beverage, how about you?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m exhausted. I guess that’s what will happen when a person travels for two weeks straight while juggling work in between. I just returned from my Yellowstone trip on Wednesday and didn’t get the chance to do much of my gardening chores yet but I did get a shock when I returned home from Las Vegas.
A month ago, I started gardening in my 5-tier Greenstalk vertical planter. I wrote about it in this post. A few bloggers commented and were curious of the result. The picture on the left was taken on June 24, 2021 and the ones on the right were taken July 24, 2021.
With the exception of two Marigolds which were planted on July 5, 2021, all the other plants went into the containers between June 24 and 25, 2021. I had to add some extra support for the cucumbers and tomatoes along the way. The surprise I got when I returned from Las Vegas was seeing how much my sweet pepper plants grew at the top.
Those pepper leaves are humongous! Biggest I’ve ever seen.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you there are a total of 25 plants in this 30 pockets container. I have kept a few pockets empty so the cucumber and tomato plants can grow horizontally if need to. I have already harvested a few cherry tomatoes from these containers and am currently waiting on the cucumbers and peppers. I can’t wait.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I have a 7-tier container with shallower pockets which I’m planning on moving my propagated strawberry plants to as soon as the temperature cools down.
If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me in this edition of #weekendcoffeeshare and hope we’ll both return next week.
