Vegetable Garden: Recovery

{ 2 comments }

After the horrible flooding we had a few weeks ago, I wasn’t sure if my little garden was going to survive.

Eventually, that little yellow thing known as the sun came back around, and what do you know, everything started to perk back up.

These photos were taken 10 days ago, and I’m happy to report everything has gotten even bigger since.

The center head of broccoli is at least double this size now!

The weekend after the storms, I bought some new plants to celebrate the recovery of the garden. I got three kinds of local tomatoes.

I also planted some marigolds as a natural pest repellent. We’ll see how those work out.

So it seems that despite record rainfall, my veggies are strong and won’t go down without a fight. I bought a few pepper plants at the Farmers’ Market today, so I’ll have even more updated pictures up later this week!

The mulch and weed fabric I spent hours laying, however, is a different story altogether. . .

    Do you mean marigolds, not geraniums?

    Your garden is inspiring. I think I’ll plant something in a container on my balcony, probably lettuce even though it might be too hot here pretty soon.

      Haha yes, I definitely meant marigolds. I didn’t even notice that. It’s fixed now, thanks for letting me know :)

      Thanks! I really don’t know what I’m doing, but it’s a lot of fun. You should definitely do some container plants!
