Baby Stair Garden Has MOVED

Coming to an End.

With 106+deg weather and a long work schedule, baby stair garden has seen better days. It’s time to let things dry out and prepare pots for another day. I will be moving in the next month anyway, so I’ll just have to start planning for the next growing season.

Making progress. It feels like just yesterday when these cardinal climbers were just seedlings and now they are quickly covering the length of the stair rail.

Hunger. It seems that tomatoes spark quite an interest.

Adopted. Pole beans that were literally left on the bottom of my stairs by my ex-neighbor and fellow gardener.

Summer Forever! I made a fresh from the garden basil, tomato, and mayonnaise sandwich with toasted Italian bread.

For the love of yellow!

Bolted. The heat really got to the lettuce this year. They bolted and got sour/bitter before I ever had a chance to eat it. However, all cut back, they will begin to grow again. I couldn’t find any info on if the new leaves will also be sour… guess we’ll see!!!

Yum. There will be peas! So far, I have plenty of pea flowers blooming and 5+ peas taking shape.

Unintentional. These sunflowers are a result of a bird feeder I used to have hanging during the winter and early spring months. Before I ever had a chance to start my stair garden properly, these little guys started sending up cotyledons. They are pretty small, only a foot or so in height, most likely because of the tiny container they found themselves in.
