Last warm season most of our harvest were from our container garden. But this cool season in the middle of winter, not much to harvest from our container garden since most of the plants are growing very slowly. Most of our plants are grown in containers at our backyard. When we first started growing our food in containers there were only about 5 polystyrene containers . However, we keep on expanding after we got more and more experience growing food in containers.Not everything goes well it is all about trial and error, and not following many rules written in some gardening books. I think it keep on expanding is because we run out space to grow things at the front yard. Moreover dear husband sometimes find some polystyrene containers for me after he finished work when he knows that I was very stress with my studies and Rayyan's health at one stage that I need to grow things during weekend as it helps clear up my mind. At the moment, I am not sure how many polystyrene containers we have. A very short tour this middle of winter of what is growing in some part of our container garden.
Ranunculus and pansy seedlings in the round plastic pots. Giant purple mustard and pest-ravished komatsuna seedlings growing together in the same containers. Planning to harvest those mustards soon as the bigger they grow will taste more bitter and hot.
Leeks and root vegetables growing at this corner.
We were rearranging the container garden 2 weeks ago, and move many of the containers around. The yellow cherry tomatoes that look so healthy before got very sad after we moved it to another spot. I think roots that had creep out from the holes were uprooted and cause the yellow cherry tomato plants to look like this now with all the leaves dying. Not sure whether this plant will recover but it will be nice to continue to harvest cherry tomatoes when we finally have some baby lettuce to harvest and make salad together. We still managed to harvest a bowl of yellow cherry tomatoes once a week. Not many tomato blooms anymore but there are still many green tomatoes taking it sweet time to mature which is good because we won't have a glut.
Hope you got most of the gardening tasks set out this weekend done!
We hope for more strawberries next warm seasons, so transplanted runners and some self-sowed alpine strawberries on Saturday.
Sunday was too cold for my bones and had to accompany dear hubby for shopping.
