A little bit of a "Weekend Round Up" as well as an update on the Rooftop Garden/Container Garden in this post! This past weekend my mom, dad, sister, and I were with our Wildtree Products at Merritt Winery outside of Dunkirk, NY, for the 2nd time this year. The weather started off not-so-great but it ended on a more pleasant note. I was able to take a photograph of their vineyards before we left Sunday Night.
My sister and parents went on a little outing not too long ago and grabbed a drink or two at a Greek Restaurant and saved me this bottle. WHY? You might ask? Well, because it has a Unicorn on it - of course! If you don't already know - I've been a life long unicorn collector...I added this to my collection. I posted this photo on InstaGram and noticed Mythos Beer is really popular overseas...I saw posts from Greece, Turkey, Italy, and other countries, too! Pretty neat! I made a spot for this empty bottle in my Craft Room.
Another thing I wanted to take time today - to update you all on - was some more Rooftop Garden/Container Garden updates! On the right are two Dragons Tongue Bean plants BUT on the left is a container of Yard Long Beans that are crawling over and attaching themselves to the Dragons Tongue. The Yard Long Beans are CRAZY HUGE! They really can grow up to a YARD long! Hence the name! One of these days I will try and take a pic of me holding one so you can see just how long they really are! They are so cool!
Here are some peppers we are having luck with now! These are the Big Jim Peppers! They are supposed to be mild to medium on the heat scale. I think we will let them go a bit longer before picking because they can get to be between 7 and 10 inches long and I've read they also can turn red, too! These are doing pretty well under our stairs in partial sun.
Questions of the Day...How was your weekend? Do anything interesting? How's your garden going and growing? Any surprises there? Have you tried Yardlong Beans or Big Jim Peppers? What are your thoughts on those two produce picks?
