Miniature Boo Pumpkins against a huge zucchini leaf.
Wordless Wednesday: Miniature Vegetable Gardening
This spring got off to a bumpy start for the vegetable garden as we moved home, business, garden and nursery in the middle of June. I love how most of the plants caught up on their growing schedule though. I don’t think we’ll have enough season left for the mini bell peppers and the baby eggplant to fruit, but here’s hoping – it was a cold spring so just maybe the summer weather will continue into September.
The miniature vegetable seeds came from Seedman.com. I’m happy with all of them except I need to figure out what the Sweet Baby Corn is doing!!
Miniature Boo Pumpkin Flower
Miniature Boo Pumpkin, love the tendrils....
Sweet Baby (Mutant) Corn's silky hairdo...
Sweet Baby (Mutant) Corn. Not sure what it's doing - it's not exactly acting like the life-sized corn. I'll let you know if I get any corn out of it! Lol...
Tom Thumb Lettuce - was harvested weeks ago. Couldn't sow the seed directly into the bed, I'll have to start some in a container for the fall veggie garden.
Alpine Strawberry - a.k.a Garden Candy
Baby Eggplant. We planted late because of the move in June, not sure I'll have time to get anything out of this little guy.
Tumbling Tom Tomato, either red or yellow.... we're awaiting confirmation - another result of moving in June!
Sweet Dumpling Squash against Midget Cucumber Leaves
Midget Cucumber Flower - hope to get some pickles out of these guys soon!! Might be a small batch - literately and figuratively! ;o)
Small Artichoke - not a miniature but very pretty, despite the aphids... we don't use pesticides or chemicals. They need a good hard spray!
Red Thyme Flowers rim the veggie bed
Zinnia Flower - not a miniature, but I rarely grow flowers from seed. I think I'm hooked now...
