For once, I'm not being sarcastic. My fountain garden is doing wonderfully. One of the asparagus plants is even trying a little. The Brussels are sort of considering producing sprout stems, but at least the plant is alive and growing. I hate to say it, but pesticides made the difference.
Once the tomatoes start to ripen, I'm going to have a lot of cherry tomatoes to deal with. The plant is very happy, despite me accidentally breaking off half a branch. There are plenty of other clusters to make up for the two that were lost. I have started a list of things to do with a plethora of tomatoes.
I keep forgetting about the green onions. I water them, but don't really pay attention. I pulled one, just to see how they were doing. The roots were strong, but the whole stalk was small. I think I need to water them twice a week instead of just once, especially when it gets hot, because of the shallow roots.
The cilantro decided to flower instead of putting out more herb leaves. I wonder if I'll get coriander seed out of it.
The mint is, well, mint. I didn't water it enough and it almost died. Half a gallon later, it was fine the next day. Made a batch of basil & mint iced tea to use some of it.
I'm really enjoying the idea of going out to the back to get an ingredient. I've always been like that with the lemons, but now I get to do it more often, for more things. With a little luck, this will be a fun culinary summer.
