Cukes, Crocus and Karma
Just a quick update on how some of the plants are doing. A couple of our windowsill Cucino cukes are ready to eat....I can't wait to try them....I have been giving them some organic fertilizer and pinching off the new blossoms so I think most of them will mature soon. My family doubted me on whether they would produce any fruit and I proved them wrong :)
On another note...during my afternoon puppy walk, I came across some blooming Crocus....they are everywhere at Black Bay but just starting to bloom. Soon it will look like a carpet of purple...I can't wait!
In the last pic are my Karma (love the name) peppers. They are just starting to peak out from under the soil....and the other 200 or so should be shortly behind them. By staggering the planting dates I hope they come on in a nice succession....time will tell though...Now it's off to the greenhouse for me... :)
