Just before watering the plants in the greenhouse this morning I snapped a few pictures so I could show you what’s growing. Last year I had a lot more tomato and pepper plants in the greenhouse around this time, but it was nuts. I packed way to many plants in there and could barely move around, so this year I promised myself I wouldn’t do the same thing.
After all, plants need room to grow just like humans do.
Right now we have cucumbers, basil, Swiss chard and peppers growing on the left greenhouse wall.
Once the cucumbers get a little taller I’ll wrap some garden twine around them and create little trellis so they can grow along the top eves of the greenhouse and dangle down. I did it last year and they looked pretty cool.
This is round two of our greenhouse basil. The first batch was grown in a flat. This time around I thought it might be fun to try growing the basil in gutters. Have you ever tried this? I think it will look cool once it gets growing.
And Swiss chard. You can grow this
crap yummy delicious stuff anywhere.
Check out the strawberries! We are harvesting juicy red berries from the greenhouse gutters every other day now. We had strawberry shortcakes last night and they were delicious!
Here is a picture of my beloved green zebra tomatoes. I LOVE THESE TOMATOES!
Last year the plants grew so tall they were coming out of the top vent in the greenhouse. It was crazy. But I’m looking forward to it happening all over again because these tomatoes are delicious.
And last but not least, here is a picture of the potatoes and chives growing alongside the greenhouse.
How is your garden growing? Do you co-plant anything with your potatoes?
