First Garden Vegetables



I have grown flowering plant and shrubs and the last two year a hot scotch bonnet pepper plant.  This year I decided to try and expand to include Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Cucumber and some mint if all else fail. 

The tomatoes all did very well only a bit of drainage problem, I grew the tomatoes in plastic buckets, the instruction included pebbles at the bottom to help with drainage, I skipped that step :-) but next year I will definitely include.

The bell peppers did not do so good in the wooden half barrel so I transplant in garden and they love it, so no more buckets for peppers.

I lost the cucumber plant from the start, even after getting my honey to build me an impressive trellis, but I have not given up, I have seen on the Internet that you can grow cucumber in those garden plastic planters, so I will be trying it again next season. 

This entire summer season I did not purchase tomatoes that was a liberating feeling, it is very nice indeed to grow produce for the table.
