Anna’s Adventure in Edibles – Week 4 (RIP Peanut)

NEW PLANTS:

  • Yes! I have two new edamame plants!

DEATHS OF PLANTS:

  • Yes 🙁 The squirrels dug up the peanut plant… No it’s gone. #RIPpeanut:(

TODAY’S DEFINITION:

Upgraded –  To raise (something) to a higher standard, in particular improve by adding or replacing components.

WHY:

(IN 4 WORDS OR LESS)

  • Plants moved to better spots… (Hopefully they didn’t die in the process 😐 )
  • New plants were added!
  •  The Peanut is not struggling anymore. 🙁

REVIEWS:

OVER ALL STARS – ****** (6 STARS)

DIRTINESS (I got)  –  **** (4 stars) = I got dirty when I planted, dug up, and changed the places of the plants.

BUDDING  –  ** (2 1/2 stars) = The yellow bell pepper has lost it’s flowers, but the cumber melon has a bunch hidden inside the tangle of leaves! 🙂

GROWTH  –  **** (4 stars)  = Everything is growing (except for the lavender)! The plants are big and bushy, but no fruit and veggies yet.

DO’S AND DON’Ts:

  1. DO: Cover and protect your plants for the squirrels ASAP!!
  2. DON’T: Trust the squirrels to not to eat your plants…
  3. DO: Get whatever your plant needs (like; more soil, a lot of water, and space for your plant to grow)!

MY PLAN OF ACTION:

  • Put up netting to keep the squirrels away!
  • Check on my plants a lot (but that doesn’t mean water them everyday)!
  • Make SURE  my plants have everything they need to live!

 

FUN FACTS – Sugar plant:

The sugar plant supposedly has leaves that are sweeter than sugar, and white little flowers that bloom till the end of summer. My sugar plant is still young, but the leaves were sweet (maybe not as much as sugar) and had a little bitter after taste. The leaves are said to taste good in a fruit salad (which I could see), and bread (which sounds kind of gross)!

I chose to write about the sugar plant because that is what got the most votes (well there was only one) in the comments. Comment down below about which plant you want to hear about next!

P.S. I only got one comment last time requesting a plant! I would love to hear more from you all, so please comment down below!

Thanks,

Anna 🙂

    Poor peanut! I think the netting would be a good idea. I can’t wait to make some lavender lemonade!! 🙂

    Had no idea there was something that could be sweeter than sugar!!!!!

    I’ll help you plan a funeral for Mr.. Peanut.

    RIP mr. Peanut. When are we going to get to eat some of this stuff?

  7. Isabella July 6, 2017

    Poor Peanut!

    RIP!

    Sad to hear about the peanut. Rotten nasty squirrels! Get that netting up asap before the scoundrels steal ALL your veggies too. Can’t your “hunting” dogs keep them away?

      Lucky squirrels! At least they get to eat some of this stuff. We only get to see it in pictures. Maybe MY prize for winning the blog challenge will be a nice fresh basket from the garden.

      No… I think the dogs are in-cahoots with the squirrels’ plan to my veggies!

  9. Emilio July 7, 2017

    I love vegetables!!!

  10. Aunt Lauren July 8, 2017

    I say try again on peanuts, adding a cage to protect it. We have to do that for many plants to protect them from deer nibbling them.

  11. donna July 10, 2017

    When will you begin to harvest some of these edibles? Aren’t we supposed to eat them?

  12. Aunt Debbie July 27, 2017

    Anna may not be harvesting, but I picked eggplant last week. Uncle Max cooked it on the grill – a little bit of olive oil and S&P… delish!!!!
