My balcony garden photos “update”


Hello everyone,
As I promised on Saturday, today I am going to write how my home garden is going.
You can see the photostream from Flikr below. The cucumbers are growing very well – one of the plants is about a meter high. There are some small cucumbers already. We still can not put them on the balcony as the weather is still cold during the nights. The average temperatures for cucumbers should be about 70 degrees Fahrenheit otherwise they may die. I hope that the weather becomes warmer after a week or two. As you can see on the photos – yellow string beans are fine too. My wife planted them just for fun but I am sure there will be enough beans for a big salad portion by the end of the season 😀
The dill is growing a bit slow but yesterday I’ve already had salad with our own dill so I am satisfied with that too.
Tomatoes… It’s hard for me to write about them as my granny has ruined my dreams yesterday. She promised to give me two tomato plants and even showed them to me. I was so glad as she grows very nice sort that bear vegetables till the late Autumn. But when I visited her yesterday she said she thought I’ve changed my mind and therefore she planted them in her garden. 😐 Well… Never mind. At least she told me I’ll get some tomatoes. And we still have six cherry tomato plants 😉 I’ve got some herbs, strawberries and even a lemon tree on the photos. I will write about them shortly. I wish you all the best in your gardens for now!

I wish I could be read better in Spanish, but I found a great site that will be of help with my veggies. Most tutoring net companies just sell netting and have no real expertise in agriculture. Hortomallas has a great library available to farmers as tutora means tutor as referred to a plant. I ran into this site by mere chance as I was trying to find the ideal product to tutor my backyard vegetables, and did not know that using netting reduces viruses and fungi. I will try now to go 100% organic!
