|Before we moved in (as landlords were moving out)|
|Working on a little dead-root-excavation project.|
That thing was intense.
|The patio garden as it currently stands.|
Ignore the lanterns on the ground because
I haven't figured out how to hang them yet.
|Tomatoes (were already growing in this pot)|
and yellow squash (starter plant bought at Whole Foods).
They can live together, right?
|The zucchini plants I started from seeds. Just a couple weeks|
and they're as big as the starter squash plant! Hope they don't
outgrow the pot too soon...
|Just for fun, a little houseplant progress. I've moved this dude|
outside for now, because I don't know where to put him in
the apartment, and I think he likes the sunshine for now.
|Remember when he was only this big?|
So yes. On our patio we have:
- 1 Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree
- 4 basil plants (one good, three clippings from a dying plant that I'm trying to rejuvenate)
- 1 mint plant, 1 oregano plant, 1 parsley plant (all sort of not liking the recent heat wave)
- 2 tomato plants (left by the landlords, sort of dying, trying to save them)
- 1 yellow squash
- 1 pot full of zucchini.
And lastly, a plea for aid: Today I noticed these weird little bugs hanging out on one of the tomato plants. Does anyone out there know what they are and how to get rid of them without harmful chemicals?
|Please don't eat my tomatoes!|
