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.

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

NYC tour





Empire state building.






The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
