Our first raised bed is now full!!
Actually is has been for a couple of weeks, but due to life we are a bit behind on posting. James is so busy at work that it is overflowing into gardening and blogging time (and wife time!) and well my excuse is that I’m awful at blogging. I’m going to try to be a lot better and keep you all updated on things going on now instead of things that happened two weeks ago. Don’t hold your breath, like I said… I’m trying.
Annnnd now back to the peppers.
This bed was reserved for and is now full of sweet peppers. We eat a lot of peppers, like, A LOT. Raw on sandwiches, salads and cooked in just about anything that you can cook them in. We had a few plants last year but they just didn’t give us the amount of peppers we were looking for, so this year we planted quite a few plants.
In this bed we have California Wonder Bells, Sweet Bananas and Summer Salads. Five plants of each type and so far they are all doing great.
A few of the plants were a little small when we planted them, but we have been protecting them from the harsh winds with the awesome row cover that James built along with the bed and they seem to be doing just fine. Also we got the irrigation set up a while back – so after a few modifications… it is doing it’s job!
There have been many plants going into beds, barrels and other various containers and I will do my best to get us all caught up this week.
