The mini greenhouse


I am going to have to transplant the celery into the poly-tunnel. I then can move the bell pepper forward and give them more room to grow. The bell pepper plants are full of flowers. I hope the Celery will not be harmed by being transplanted this late in the season. Despite the water shortage, our garden is still thriving. I have harvested strawberries, broccoli, spinach and two kinds of  lettuce already this season. We are so pleased.

  1. Congratulations Honey! Look at all that healthy growth. I have never grown Celery, but grow something called Cutting Celery, which has the flavour in the leaves but no stems. I will send you some seed when I next go shopping!

    • Thank you Karen for the compliment. I would love to try cutting celery. I will say that I was surprised how slow celery grows. I read that store bought celery can have as much as 80 different pesticides on it. I love celery. I use it in so many dishes. Thus far we have had no pest problems. I found a little frog has been climbing in and out of my mini green house in the evenings.I have found him three evenings in a row. I know we have had a really warm summer that might be why they are doing so well. I am just gratefull either way.

      • I absolutely understand about your desire to eat food without pesticides- I once read how many times carrots and potatoes are sprayed. That rubbish must travel deep into the flesh of the produce. Horrible.
        I love your news about the frog- such magical creatures.
        I found Newts last week and was overjoyed!

      • I had been bummed out because the big frog that has lived in my garden for 3 years has disappeared. I don’t know how long a frog lives but I wonder if it died. I have caught two small frogs and placed them in the vegetable patch. I put out a container of water for them. I hope they take up residence.
        I never thought about frogs or newt in my garden untill we started our veggie patch. I get all excited about snails, frogs and newts or lizards now. It cracks me up how things change.
