In case you had not noticed, I really enjoy planting in Peat Pellets. They are easy to use and virtually mess-free.
Our plan was to move to another house with a bigger growing area last month but that didn't happen. Then it was pushed to the end of March. However, it doesn't look like the house is ready and now we're not so sure that we want to move. I was a little disappointed but it's not the end of the world. Anything could happen at the moment.
So...In the next few weeks I'll be doing a bit of planning. If I have a limited amount of space I want to make the most of it. I'll figure out a way to plant everything I want in the space that I have available.
I know it's only March but there's lots growing already in the garden!
Currently growing are Serrano and Bell Peppers, Lots of Basil, Red-Fig Tomato, Kentucky Wonder (pole) and Blue Lake Bush Beans, Black Beauty Eggplant, Swiss Chard, Pak Choy Cabbage and Beets!
|We ate these red-Fig Tomatoes on our salad yesterday!|
