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.

Travel Adventure 2019

Had a dream come thru in March 2019, with my Trip to Italy. First stop on the tour Venice, there was many sites to see.  Murano Glass, Doge's Palace, Museo Correr and nice walk thru of St. Mark's Basilica.
