Garden Update + Fall Harvest Ideas

by - 9/14/2021 12:00:00 AM

Where do I begin, this has been a really weird gardening year for me, I started so many plants and I'm still optimistic about a few of them, I planted my loofah seeds months ago, and I'm pretty confident that it's growing on the side of my home. I actually noticed it while I was taking the photo. This is my first time growing loofah's, and I'm really excited about this plant. While writing this post, I was going to actually move the loofah plant, however, I'm just going to allow it to run wild on the side of my home. I guess it's actually a thing that some people do. 

I planted a ton of tomatoes and pumpkin seeds, and I honestly don't know what happened to them, I'm not sure if animals dug them up or what. I was hoping to get at least one pumpkin from all of the seeds I planted. During the early spring months, I did notice my pumpkin plant growing, and I haven't seen it since. It's been so hit or miss for me with my garden this year, and I'm not sure what happened. Every time I planted a pepper plant, it didn't make it. I'm so happy to see my tomato plants flourishing,  it's such a rewarding feeling, my sage came up again this year, and I actually added more to my garden this year. None of my beans made it... Though I may have some time to add more plants, I have already started some veggies for my fall garden, and I'm excited about it. Below, I'm sharing a few pictures from my garden this year and some fall harvest ideas.
