Garden Update

My bush cucumber is doing really well in it's upside down basket. I had given up on cucumbers because I had never actually harvested one. I have a bunch of flowers, one cucumber is about 2-1/2 inches long.
Here you can see the cucumber I referred to before. I have some net trellising that I am going to hang between the deck railing and the fascia board under the roof to give the plant something to "grab" otherwise I'm afraid it will start vining over to the oak tree, which has a branch about 2 - 3 feet away from the deck. Then I wouldn't be able to get to my cucumbers!!
This is the first tomato which showed up. According to the size on the tag, it has about another inch to go before it starts to (hopefully) ripen. My husband has been eying it, becuase it's a bush goliath tomato, which I got for his sandwiches!

One side of my deck, my herb pot, tomatoes and peppers.

Grape tomatoes in the topsy turvy. I am going to hang some net trellising for it too, 0therwise my downstairs neighbors will get all my tomatoes!

  1. Just awesome! I bet I could do the upside down thing too. You've really inspired me to try!
