Garden update

 
 
 
 
 
Some time has passed since my last garden update.
What can I say. Everything is growing! I was able to harvest all onions, the first yellow courgette, peas, spinach, rucola, salads and every day now, I can pick one or two cucumbers. I have 3 different sorts. My cucumber plants are my source of pride! They are much taller than me now (picture no. 6).
On the last photo you can see my first bitter melon, where I got seeds from Coco. I am very curious how it will taste!

@coco i have also tried 2 bitter melon plants outside the greenhouse, but they don't grow. But in side the greenhouse they work! But the strange thing is that i have many flowers, but only one big fruit so far. So this is the only fruit so far, but maybe some other will follow! I will keep you updated! ;)

coco said...

flowers without long tips attached to it is male(i think), so they won't produce fruits. but i am sure there will be some more fruits on the way throughout summer.
I also spotted cardiospermum growing tall with petite white flowers...soon you will see lots of balloons.
have fun.

Oh, that's so cool you're growing bitter melon! And those peas look delicious. We have over 10, I think, zucchini plants in my garden and we're only just realizing that probably wasn't such a good idea because we now have over 20 zucchinis waiting to be put to use on our table.

@carly kaste oh yes! ahahaha! Maybe you can preserve some? I read that one or 2 zucchini plants can feed a family of 10 persons! I have to remove often the leaves from my plant, because otherwise there is no space in the greenhouse left ;)
