Even though summer is winding down here in Western Washington, things are just beginning to pick up in the greenhouse. This winter I am going to try and grow as many vegetables in the greenhouse as I can.
And I’m starting with peas.
Last week I planted a packet of Sugar Snap Peas in two large containers and set them inside the greenhouse. So far so good. Even though I planted fall peas in the garden boxes outside, I wanted a little extra insurance just in case we get an early frost.
I still have one more packet of pea seeds left, so in another week or so I think I’ll plant those in the greenhouse as well.
Basil. I never did get around to thinning my basil plants from the gutters. Oh well, young basil leaves taste just as good as the larger ones.
The strawberries are alive and kickin’.
As soon as these tri-star berries stop producing, I’ll remove them from the gutters and plant them somewhere else in the garden.
Funky peppers. What am I doing wrong?
Ahh Lemon. Can I just say I was getting a little worried about her? At last count she was down to 9 little lemons. NINE.
But now she is putting out more buds, so all is well in the universe again. Fingers crossed these turn into baby Meyer Lemons.
Did you grow Sun Gold tomatoes this year?
Aren’t they the best?
Did you plant beef stake tomatoes too? How are they doing? Evil slugs got a hold of the first two I had growing in the greenhouse, but now that I’ve layed down Sluggo everywhere I can finally let out a sigh of relief.
And last but not least, here’s a photo of some of our green zebra tomatoes. Just a few more days and these ‘maters will be ready to pick. Word on the street is Mrs. HB wants to do some bartering, so I know they’ll find a good home.
How are YOUR crops doing these days?
Are you ready to put your garden to bed for the winter, or still enjoying it?
