Container Gardening

We had so much rain and humidity here for the last 2 weeks on and off that hindered us from doing anything outside.

In between the constant rain and a few times it stop , we managed to get our plants in containers. We made a shelf high off the ground so critters won’t get to them. So, far it worked but how we had the plants placed they weren’t getting enough sunlight.

We have lots of tomatoes , some cucumbers, mint and sweet basil. We used an old Bathroom Tub for our potatoes. Hopefully, the potatoes will grow, this is the first time trying to grow potatoes.

We are new to growing more food this year. We have some experience with tomatoes and peppers. I need to get out 2 more containers so I can plant my lettuces. My seeds came in that I ordered but unfortunately the mint lettuce was out of stock.

The pot that I put the sweet basil is crowded so they will have to be separated into other containers. We are still trying to figure out where to place everything for maximum sunny light. We’ve been busy with the inside of our home and have finished some projects but not all. Some projects have been temporarily on hold. We found a new leak on our tip out so that has to be redone. The leak is in what use to be my room. It didn’t leak that bad but it was enough for me to take all my belongings out, I didn’t want the laptop or other things ruined.

The leak got fixed but I decided to give the room to our cats, They really needed a place to eat and hangout. We had to keep their food up high because our dog would eat their food and her own food.

We are taking it one day at a time here. It’s hard to believe that it’s almost the end of July. 2020 has been a strange year to say the least. It doesn’t “feel” like it should be mid-summer.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Thanks for stopping by

Til next time
