The Garden and How it's Doing
Meanwhile, the red potato is doing GREAT. I'm very impressed and if it produces as well as it looks (such a pretty plant too) I'll definitely plant potatoes whenever possible. The sweet peas are starting to "tendril" and "vine" and I plan on guiding them up the tomato cage and up onto the porch. I hope it goes well.
The broccoli is doing well, although I honestly can't tell if any growth has occured. The broccoli seeds I planted have done absolutely nothing. The spinach and red chard are coming up, but very very slowly. I believe I should have stated them indoors and transplanted them. The lettuces and red chard are doing well, altho the local cat is still digging and pooping in the box. I put a bunch of strong onion/garlic/red pepper around them in the hopes that he will go elsewhere. Not sure what else to do...again!
I bought another solar oven, the CookIt, to supplement the one I have. It's a beautiful clear day out today. I should have put something out to cook.
