Cucumbers and Peas Growing Indoors

Today was a really nice day so I spent most of the time outside, pruning fruit trees with my parents and building stuff for the garden. Last night my dad and I finished another compost tumbler, which is now already half full, and today after pruning, we started work on a raised bed. This particular raised bed is 3′ x 8′ and is for our strawberries. We didn’t quite finish it, but we only have about half an hour of work left before it’s done.

So now we have two compost tumblers composting away, we have a couple of apple and peach trees pruned, and we have 1 and a half raised beds built. We still need to build quite a lot of raised beds and as much as two more compost tumblers, but now that the weather is nicer, we will be able to make fast progress.

In addition, on our last garden post, we mentioned the fact that our indoor cucumber plants were flowering. They are still flowering, and we also saw a few tiny cucumbers growing on the plants. We’ll see how big they get before they go outside for good!

Thankfully our peas are looking much better, so we took some pictures of our set up. The peas are also getting ready to bloom and there are even a couple of small pea pods on them.

We never intended to grow cukes indoors; we were just checking to see if the seeds were viable. And I don’t know why the peas were ever planted. I think someone was just too anxious to get spring started in here 🙂

We hope you enjoy the pictures and are having a great time planning your garden and gearing up for a great season!
