How is your garden growing...

Here is an update on how things are progressing in the garden:

Almost the whole garden, looking northwest. Click the image to see the labels.
Bought these at Lowes. They are Ferry-Morse Black Krim organic seeds.
My 3 types of peppers (spice, hot, and bell) with marigolds in the middle.
These are red potatoes from store bought "seeds". Planted them to see what would happen. So far I found 2 small potato buds!
Trying to go as organic as possible this year, so I put some MG organic blood meal and bone meal out today as all my plants were looking a bit yellow (haven't fertilized anything since I planted them about 4 weeks ago). With the rain we are getting now, I hope to see great improvement in all the plants.

The Black Krim tomatoes are Miracle Gro soil, and far outgrew the tomato seeds I planted in some inexpensive garden soil I bought. I have since transplanted the other tomatoes into larger pots with some MG soil, and they seem to be growing better. I hope to do the same with the peppers. They have not grown much in the past week or so, and I think it is due to the soil they are in (nothing has been lacking for water).

Anyway, that's what has been going on since the last post. Fingers crossed and prayers lifted high for a bountiful year! Hope you are having good luck as well.

Happy Gardening!
