Gardening Again!

>> Saturday, January 08, 2011

It has been quite a dry spell for me!  Our two month mainland trip (September & October 2010) put a damper on my gardening enthusiasm.  When we got back everything was still alive, but wild, veggies and landscape!  After a week or two I pruned some of the landscape, but left the veggies alone.  There were weeds and some sort of mushroom bloom among the tomatoes, yuk!  Finally, I took it all out expect the swiss chard.

Happily three volunteer Komohana grape tomato plants have started giving me new energy.  I staked them yesterday.  So, I guess I am officially back in the vegetable gardening business!  I ordered some seeds earlier this week based on one recommendations form one of my favorite Hawaii gardening blogs (A Kitchen Garden in Kihei Maui). Veggies coming soon!

Volunteers are the best, aren't they? i was just out in my garden this morning admiring a remarkably healthy looking bok choy volunteer.
Welcome home and congratulations on your certification.

Your garden is looking good already - I can't wait to see what you'll be planting this winter!
