I am so surprised at how fast the beans and cucumbers have taken off. I just planted them last week and look at them! I guess the humidity is a good thing.
Here is the coconut basket with the pole beans in them. It was only a few days before I noticed they had started sprouting.
This is the basket with my armenien (mispelled) cucumbers in it. They are a little slower but they are growing! I'm so excited.
We love cilantro, so when I planted the plant from the garden shop I sprinkled in some seeds also. they are coming up too! I am hoping that I can get a couple more pots with chives, thyme and rosemary growing too.
Yesterday Wendell went to the bookstore and came back with this on for me. Its 'The Backyard Homestead'. Its shows you how to grow your own food on a quarter of an acre and less. It has all kinds of interesting information that I hope to be able to share. Its published by Storey. I think I have the greatest guy. He's always thinking about me. :)
According to the weatherman we are in for the warmest day of the year today. Sun is shining and its starting to get really humid. I am really going to miss our pool. Maybe we will be able to come up with one once Wendell's back-pay from social security gets here. Without air condition it would help a lot and be an inexpensive form of entertainment for us. We'll have to see...
I am off to start cleaning house and working out in the garden. I hope you all have a great Wednesday! Take care,Debbie
