It’s been awhile since I’ve shared pictures of the greenhouse with you so I snapped a few pictures last night.
If you look really close you can see a hint of pink near the greenhouse glass. That’s a stargazer lily plant. This is my first year growing lilies and something tells me I probably should not have planted the bulbs alongside the greenhouse but oh well, at least it will add a little color to the area.
Inside the greenhouse the cucumber plants are starting put our vines. Pretty soon I’ll be guiding them towards the top of the greenhouse with twine.
Here’s a close up of the cucumber plant.
The basil we planted in gutters is thriving. Pretty soon I’ll have to thin it.
The two green zebra tomato plants we planted in the stock tank are getting nice and plump.
Look how thick the tomato stem is.
Strawberries are still hanging tough in the greenhouse gutters.
And last but not least. Take a look at Lemon, the Meyer Lemon Tree. Ain’t she a beauty? Look at all those baby lemons she’s trying to grow. A greenhouse heater is definitely on my wish list for this fall. Since this is my first year growing citrus in the Pacific Northwest, I have no idea how many lemons I’ll get, but even if I only end up with a handful, it will be totally worth it.
Growing your own food is cool, no matter how you do it.
Keep calm and garden on.
