What’s Growing in the Apartment Garden, #2

12 Comments

Things are growing beautifully here at home! We have lots planted and still space for more. There is a new weed coming up a lot that I have never seen before with a big, annoying taproot… I’m not a fan. Besides that, things are perfect and lovely!

ImageThe snap peas are growing fast. Today I’m going to tie some twine up the patio railing there so our little babies can climb up easily. They are so cute and will look beautiful once they start flowering!

ImageThis is a brand new strawberry patch that we just planted. We probably won’t get much fruit this year, but it’s growing well! Arugula in the bottom right and radishes growing behind the strawberries.

ImageRadishes and carrots are growing slowly but surely in the wacky temperatures we’ve been having. Over on the right, take a look at that awesome Red Clover!! Almost time to harvest some flowers from her.

ImageSweet little poppy flowers are coming up in the lettuce patch! They will look gorgeous in a few weeks. Last year I had one poppy flower, let the seeds fall and overwinter, and now we have so many coming up! Poppy seeds like to overwinter.

ImageI’m just starting to get things growing in our patio pots again. I planted cilantro, marigolds, and in a 5 gallon bucket I put a tomato, carrots, and calendula! It’s amazing to see what plants can grow harmoniously together in a small space and benefit eachother!

What do you have growing in your garden so far?

    • It’s looking and growing fantastic!

      • How do you plan to stop nature eating your strawberries? I had about 25 strawberry plants and not 1 strawberry!

      • That’s too bad Michael!! This is my first time growing strawberries, but I have faith they’ll do very well! I companion plant pretty much everything because I plant so much diversity in a very small space. My dear friend Christie grew loads of strawberries last year in her raised bed. She uses natural pest control – DE and cayenne mainly.

  1. Awesome! I’ve got some peas, carrots, and radishes coming up outside. I’ve had to cover them recently because the temperatures dipped, but they’re pretty hardy. I recently planted various white flowers for my moon garden (like moon flower and woodland tobacco). I also started some cilantro, catnip, dill, and lettuce. Inside, the tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and eggplants are getting bigger!

    • I love the sound of your beautiful moon garden!! Mmm radiant… Our garden here is such a mix with beets and poppies coming up in the lettuce, sage outside of it, a strawberry patch next to that. 🙂 Small space, somewhat intensive, but super relaxed and perfectly flowing together. You have a lot of wonderful food started already!! I’m so excited the temps are warmer here and every day is a beautiful day to be outside!

      • This is my second year playing with the moon garden. It’s a whiskey barrel half. Last year I also planted white cosmos but they took over and the others didn’t have a chance to flourish. Hoping for better luck this year!

      • I would love to see pictures of your moon garden! That sounds so beautiful! I love gardens in whiskey barrels, they are so nice. Maybe I can get my hands on some.

      • I’ll be posting some as soon as the seeds sprout!

  2. Fantastic growth. Lots happening here also but it’s still so cold!!

    • We had some freak snows happen here about a week and a half ago… it was wild! But most of the plants outside made it through. 🙂 I think we’ve passed the cold for good now, at least until fall!

  3. Lookin’ good! I can’t wait to see how you string your runner beans. Outside we have asparagus, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, onions, carrots, broccoli, brussel sprouts, lettuce, arugula, kale, swiss chard, various herbs and flowers (annuals and perennials), strawberries and other various berry bushes and fruit trees…while inside we have some squash and a whole army of various tomatoes and heirloom beans, ready to be planted! Phew!
