I Think, I Hope the Frost Is Over

Well I think we have survived the frost! You can read more about our battle with temps in the upper 20's here. Everything is planted except for a few eggplant plants that a friend just gave me. I have never grown eggplant before so we'll see how it does.

This isn't the best picture of the garden. It was actually taken before we planted the tomatoes. And you can see it is a little dry. Not to worry since the cold temps have passed all it has done is rain. But it has been a wonderful gentle soaking rain for the most part. Hopefully the sun will come out soon and all our little plants will just burst!

Here the kids are planting our carrots. I have never done carrots in a container before, but our soil is so rocky we never had good luck with carrots in the ground. And of course the kids love carrots and didn't want to cross them off the garden plan. So we will just have to wait and see how they do. Any of you have experience with carrots in a container? I would love to hear how it worked for you.

  1. Your garden looks great! We would love some of those gentle rains, all we seem to be getting are driving, hard rains that are beating some of our plants into the ground (and washing away our road!). I've never done any vegetable in a container, but I hope your carrots turn out well.

  2. Hmm, my first comment got lost...

    I like the idea of carrots in containers. Please keep us posted on how that works for you.

    Your garden looks very nice!

  3. Your garden is looking great!
    I am interested in how your eggplants will grow. I love eggplant, but thought it would be tricky for some reason. :)

  4. Can't wait to hear how the carrots turn out.

  5. I am adding your pictures to our From Seeds to Harvest Slideshow along with your link. I hope you don't mind. If you do just let me know and I'll remove them. It should be put later today.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
