    An Update on my Mini Farm (Garden)

      My mini farm as grown so much since I got back from camp. My watermelon is going to my neighbor’s side of the fence! Also my tomatoes, eggplant, and hot peppers are huge. And the hot pepper seeds are growing as well. We have tons of cucumber already too! Down below are some pictures of the plants so you can see how much they have grown!

    Building structure for a plant

      Today my dad built a trellis for our cucumbers and tomatoes. A trellis is a structure that a plant, usually a vine or vine plant, can wrap itself around so if doesn’t fall over. I helped my dad build the trellis. We but the polls into the ground and then put some polls across and tied them together with twine. It was a lot of work.  But I took some breaks when I was helping my dad (maybe 10 breaks shhh!). Bye! Farmer Gabriella

    Update on my backyard garden!

      Here are some pictures of my backyard garden, or as I like to call it my mini farm. It has grown so much. All of the tomatoes are still alive, despite some of our wishes (we weren’t planning on having so many tomato plant, thanks Mom!) In these pictures  are some of the plants that have grown or changed the most from when we first planted them. Enjoy!  If you have a garden you should try to plant some of these vegetables and fruit too. Farmer Gabriella

    Tomatoes and cucumbers and hot peppers, OH MY!

    Today my family and I started our garden. We do this every summer,and it’s really cool watching all the veggies grow. This year we expanded our planting area so we have more space to plant. Somehow, despite my Grandmere deciding that we would not plant tomatoes this year we ended up with 12, yes I said 12, tomato plants. *Taking a long look at my mommy here* So, I may as well tell you what else we planted. You know about the tomatoes already, we have 8 Scotch Bonnet plants and sowed a lot of seeds, 4 cucumber plants, 3 eggplants, and 2 watermelon plants. It’s our first year planting…
