TalkingGrowing Vegetables, Indoors or Out!


Hello!



Please feel free to post pictures of your veggies here too or tell us what you're growing for your table this year.


Here's a picture of my seed-grown "Black Beauty" eggplant this morning. It's really starting to take off for me. That's just a small "string of pearl" succulent cutting in the left corner of the container.






Also growing tomatoes, hot peppers, green onions...and thinking about doing a little patio cucumber plant this year too.


Although I've had many outdoor vegetable gardens in the past, lately my gardening is being done indoors.


Love to hear about what vegetables other gardeners are growing and how they are doing.

I can well imagine, Raccoon!


I adore growing veggies inside because it allows me to have an up-close and personal relationship with them, that I didn't have when I grew veggies in the garden.


Sure, I saw them and looked at them outdoors....but having them in my home allows me to see them constantly and hover over them, staring and studying them for hours. Indoor growing is just the best!


Yield-wise though, I'm afraid outdoor growing, takes the cake. Plus, pollination brings bigger fruits and veggies.

That's for sure, Raccoon!


One way or the other, I'll grow my veggies!

A thread after my own ♡!
This year I tried to trim down my garden after a discouraging year of no yield last year. But I still got carried away. In my garden I planted: Munched cucumbers, Hmong cucumbers (because the color was interesting to me), black beauty zucchini, lemon squash, yellow scallop squash, yellow crook neck squash, Lungo bianco squash (it's cream colored), spaghetti squash, lemon boy tomatoes, pink girl tomatoes, better boy (hubby grabbed these for a quarter!), jalapeños, cherry bomb peppers, and green bell peppers.

So glad you like my thread, Gardennerd. Vegetable gardening is fantastic! Love to read about what others have.


Your selection sounds amazing! I adore squash and have seeds for a cute little patty pan type called "white scallop". I think I sent seeds to Raccoon and Shrooms N Blooms for this small white variety that's perfect for pots!


Here's my little germinating "Balcony Charm" dwarf tomato seedling this afternoon....

Thanks, Raccoon! I think so too.



Lots more hot peppers developing on my "Black Pearl" plant today...





Hot peppers are actually an herb but they compliment our vegetables!!!
