My Secret Garden

Bet some of you were hoping for different pics, huh?

First up on our tour of my not so secret garden, Tomatoes, in December, jealous?



Here's an overview of my homemade raised garden. Your girl got back issues, mmmmkay? Most are fabric bags, you can get them cheap on Amazon.



And, now we come to a close up view of my baby papayas.



Banana plant, a little baby dwarf orange tree and under the homemade trellis are my green beans



Now we come to my homemade trellis system with most of my tomatoes, some carrots in the ground, a few peas here and there in fabric pots.



And, finally, we have carrots, onions, broccolini and cabbage, and there's potatoes in the ground, they just haven't shown their greens yet.



Most things in my garden I've planted from seed, and that includes that papaya. The banana and orange are inherited from Nick's mom.

Just to reiterate, I'm a new gardener who is not using pesticides nor fertilizers beyond compost.

And, I, obviously, am all for the reuse, recycle, repurpose style of gardening.

I hope you've enjoyed my little tour, I'm sure I'll do more pics as time goes on....

Your garden looks great. I live in a city centre apartment, so I only have a roof terrace. But I'm moving soon to a bungalow with a front and back garden. I need gardening tips!


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/6/2021 2:53 pm:
Thank you

First gardening tip to get you started? Compost, compost, compost.

Take scraps of whatever veggies you're eating, you know the stuff you typically throw away? Instead, stick it in something in the freezer. You're going to thank me when it's time to plant and you have all that organic matter saved up.

Maybe I'll do a tips to start a garden post one day. I'm sure I can come up with some, and maybe other gardeners can chime in with more.

Great pics and everything looks like it's thriving.
I'm not really good at growing stuff, but I have a lot of experience chopping trees. Yep.
What does that have to do with anything? 🤔
Nothing, I guess.
Ever chopped a tree down? 🎄


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/6/2021 2:54 pm:
I have cut off limbs, but never a whole tree.

I used to think I couldn't, then I learned a few things and viola...here I am.

Love your garden - jealous - my gardening is hit or miss.


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/6/2021 2:55 pm:
Thanks! I will say it helps that I live in Florida and have an abundance of sunshine. But, also, I spent a lot of time on gardening youtube to get tips on what to do, as well.

Thanks for stopping by and responding.

You did great. Too cold here for a garden.

The Light is shinning and she is lonely and waiting in the darkness.


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/6/2021 3:17 pm:
Thanks my friend.

Yeah, this is not the time of year for gardening where you're at. But, you could plant some stuff in the spring.

Good to see you around

Looks wonderful! So nice to be able to pick something fresh from the plant and not worry about where it's been or who's handled it. And no chemicals!

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:05 am:
Thanks pagan. It does make me feel good knowing exactly where it came from, and as an added bonus I've been eating more fresh fruits and veggies. Win win!

I've wanted to start a garden, but the big dog in my back yard would just eat it. The fucker chews 2x4s.


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:06 am:
Maybe put up a small cow panel fence in one corner of your yard? Or, would he get over something that short? (About four feet)

I would love to see your tomatoes

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:06 am:
Tomorrow is HNW, I can guarantee the tomatoes will be out.

There are definite perks to Florida's climate, negatives too, like the soul crushing heat and humidity of the summer.

I've found every place has it's pluses and minuses, just have to decide what's important to you.

Beautiful photos my friend. Love the Papaya and wish I could grow it here..xoxo


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:10 am:
Yeah, you're far too north to grow papaya. But, there's some things you can grow up there that are close to impossible for me because the sun is so flipping hot. Like Apple trees. I wanted to get an apple tree but was told it would suffer too much in Florida's heat.

Nothing tastes better than home-grown! Hope you have a fruitful harvest!


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:12 am:
Starting this garden has literally upped my fruit/veggie intake to double what it used to be, just because my food tastes better.

WOW! You have tomatoes coming along! I am envious. And fresh green beans! How fabulous!
I watched a guy on you tube plant, grow and harvest veggies hydroponically. He used the big plastic drums that started out life filled with food. No dirt. No bending over. It was very cool. They got sunshine but I still don't know if they would taste as good as veggies grown in the dirt.


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:14 am:
Yes, I have more cherry tomatoes, too. I just didn't take close up pics of them because we're limited in the amount of pics we can upload.

I've seen hydroponic growing on the Youtube, it's something I would pass on mainly due to the cost. Besides, I like getting dirty.

It's good to know there's a fellow gardener out there, albeit on the other side of the country.

Your seedling papaya looks really happy! I'm hoping my volunteer papaya next to the compost pile and all the new, young papaya plants I got this year survive winter. If we get a frost, there's a chance I'll lose them all, as in past years.

Still have a few tomatoes bearing fruit, slowly, and hoping the local tree rat will leave the fruits alone. It's been chewing green lemons off the tree and dropping them to the ground... no idea why. Just picked up a few more berry plants (raspberries, primocane blackberries, blueberries) to add to my collection. Most likely they'll still be in the too-small pots a year from now. Justicias, sasanqua camellias, tecoma, and tecomarias are blooming. Passionfruits are ripening slowly, some falling to the ground when ripe. Found this week to my surprise that eventually I'll have some blood oranges this year, for the first time in 4-5 years. Guess it helps that I hacked the mulberry back further this year so the oranges got slightly more sun. It's a late ripening season for the citrus and will be weeks/months before they get ripe.

We're still in that in-between time with a bit of lingering fall, temperatures up and down and up and down. It was briefly in the 80's a week ago, but now heading down into proper winter weather: a week of temps mostly in the 60s, a couple days in the 50s, with a chance of -gasp- rain!


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/7/2021 6:20 am:
We may be across the country, but I'm guess we're in similar grow zones. I'm 9B. We are pretty much able to grow the similar types of things at the same time of year.

Gotta love them volunteer plants, huh? I have Zinneas everywhere.

Have you thought of wrapping your fruit in Tulle? (the fabric, you can get a whole roll for like ten dollars on amazon or ebay) to keep the rat away from it? It's worked for me and the raccoons I've been dealing with.

I'd love to see a pic of your garden, especially your passion fruit. (I have a couple of vines that I just started this past summer, so no fruit or flowers yet). Since you don't seem to have a blog, you can just post one here...if you like...no pressure.

Thanks for stopping by and responding.

I wish I had a spacious garden like yours. I doubt I'll do much to mine until the Spring.


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/8/2021 12:44 pm:
Based on what I know of the UK, don't you guys mostly have to get an allotment or something to be able to garden because your yards are so small? Look, this knowledge is coming from watching some British Garden Youtubers, so I don't know for sure.

ooohh!!! FRESH papaya!

do you like pickles ?
try atchara.
Mmm....
XO!


EnigmaInitiative replies on 12/10/2021 7:04 am:
Yep, ate a papaya, put the seeds in the ground, murdered every other seedling but that one, and in a few months...I'm gonna have fresh papaya. I'm super excited.

I'm not a big fan of pickles or most things with a heavy vinegar flavor.

Atchara? I'll have to look it up, thanks!
