So no, I haven't given up on the gardens! They took a beating in the wind, but nature finds a way. These are from the Boy's garden, the veggies at Mom's are doing well, we have some starter plants too so I will do that update all at once. So here's the progress on the boy's garden. The Tomatoes (not pictured) are still going crazy, I seemed to have solved the grasshopper issue, I think, with some insect soap. I'm still having trouble getting any Artichoke seeds to last, they sprout but don't make it beyond 3 inches tall. I may have to get a plant in the spring.
Of the 6 sugar snap peas, 3 are really doing well, and one in particular (pictured left) more than the rest. To the right of it is a pole bean that planted itself from my previous pole bean plant!
