Tiny Garden vs. The Other Garden

Tiny garden is really coming along. There was a tiny salad a few weeks ago made out of baby lettuce and radishes. I put it into a tiny bowl and ate it with a tiny fork. I was gigantic.

Tiny Salad


Yesterday I made a normal sized salad. The lettuce was still baby, but there's tons of it and it needed to be thinned. We are also getting like a handful of radishes every other day. The ones that are red on top and white on the bottom are super spicy.


The Other Garden is almost completely planted and it's a little overwhelming since it is sort of large and a half hour away. Anyway, so far we have planted: 2 kinds of potatoes, onions, like 7 kinds of tomatoes, 2 kinds of pumpkins, daikon radishes, carrots, beets, zucchini, 2 kinds of squash, peas, bush beans, cucumbers, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts (the variety is Oliver, which is why I had to buy it, because Mr. Oliver makes the most ridiculously delicious Brussels sprouts you could ever imagine in your life). We still have to plant: sweet potatoes, 4 colors of sweet peppers, 2 colors of corn, 2 colors of eggplant, and some other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting. So far we have lost some tomato and sunflower seedlings to a critter. Gardening makes me want to murder small animals. It really does. Instead, I am going to purchase carnivore urine, since the herbal stuff sold to me doesn't seem to be working.

Here is a picture of The Other Garden when it was only partially weeded.

Very exciting! When it's all done I will be doing lots of canning and pickling and freezing, and we are also going to have a harvest dinner with the people who own the garden, which is also, very exciting!
