In a strange turn of events this is the best year ever for my basil plants. I’ve never experienced such basil riches. If I just had a few ripe tomatoes to go with the basil I’d be in heaven.
I’ve learned that it is simply hopeless to grow tomatoes in the same large pot with the ginger mint. Look at this spindly specimen! Pitiful. Whereas the mint has never been happier.
This was my first year growing Sungold tomatoes and I had such hopes. Next year I’ll try them again but in a different location.
The peppers are looking good. I think growing them in a black container really helps boost the soil temperature and give the plant a little burst of heat, even when the air temperatures aren’t so hot.
This will be the first year I harvest fresh horseradish. I am very excited to see what’s hiding under the gravel. If there is a decent harvest I’ll post pictures along with my recipe for horseradish crusted salmon….it’s so good!
And the carrots. They are supposed to be baby carrots but it has taken them forever to achieve even this size. Still…they are on their way, and fresh carrots are so tasty. A bonus…I won’t have to cut them up before I mix them in a salad!
I had a few seeds left over so I’ve even sown another crop, hopefully we’ll be enjoying carrots in November. Hey….it could happen!
Cucumbers. Oh the cucumbers. While there are still a few left to harvest, the plants have begun to look like hell. This is definitely one of those plants that can go from gorgeous to hideous in just a few days.
