#detroitraised garden๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐ŸŒพ diary ๐Ÿ“‘ | Week 14 of 2021 | Zone6 | #motownmom ๐ŸŒฑ

So A lot has happened and I need to get some pictures outside to show the progress of the garden

Here’s what I’ve planted in the past weeks

More Potatoes (two more red bags)

And using my memory going around the garden I’ve planted :

(On the side of the porch)

Broccoli | Leeks | Onions (scallions) – 2 planters | Beans | eggplants | Chinesse lettuce, butterhead lettuce | gypsophila | paw paw

And then there are two new asparagus growing – one in the swan and the other in a large tub (love Dollar General)

(by the driveway )

Morning glory | purslane | Beans

Moving inside of the greenhouse there should be basil| dill, parsley and | thyme | more eggplant (but i think it’s dead)

Next to that is the Marigold, which the grass is starting to take over. Ugh…

Getting on the porch:

I’ve planted tulips, carrots, another eggplant (which seems to actually be growing) more leeks, garlic, ginger, beans and okra

Another set of lettuce and Chinese broccoli in white pans because I thought the initial stuff was going to die

On the side of the porch to the left

The corn, water, tomato seeds, squash, spearmint, mint, purple basil, green basil, more eggplant and zucchini, also the cucumbers (2 pots this year). More peas and beans are planted in between the corn and then I’m going to put more squash around the edges to keep the squirrel from getting to the corn when it grows up.

Next to the herb raised bed is the carrots and the Brussel sprouts but I’m fighting the grass in that bed.

You can kind of see that area next to the potato bag pictures

Update on the indoor ginger: It died. I don’t know what else to say. (but I’m growing two more so we’ll see)

And then there is my asparagus from last year. So happy

I was even able to a harvest which I’ll be eating today. The lettuce came from the green container from last year and it’s still growing!

I ordered Wild Creeping Thyme, sTevia, more purslane and Black Krim Heirloom Tomato. I might do some of the Wild Creeping Thyme and Stevia, but the rest I might wait until next year to plant these

I bought sage and another tomato plant today and I’ll try to take pictures for my next update

these are just extra pictures of the beans i was growing in dollar tree containers in the hosue and then planting them outside in various places

And finally, I’m learning how to grow an orchid. You DON’T put it in dirt.

They grow in wood chips, so I got them and I’ll be replanting my orchid in a larger container and having it grow some more hopefully.

I started my hydroponics garden in the house and then I still want to start my herbs inside the house too, so I’ll get you guys more pictures and an update soon.

I think that’s about it as an update for the garden diary. Let me know about your garden in Detroit or in an urban area.
