This week in the edible garden
by Rainbow Bobbins
Still haven’t put up the grade trellis but the vines are filling out – they even have tiny grapes forming! This year I will remove the fruit before it matures and concentrate on training the vines for a healthy first harvest next year. Here is a picture of when the grapes where first transplanted in March 2013 – It seems like they have been here longer.
Tomatoes above and lettuce below … all making slow but noticeable progress. Not sure if the red mulch is helping much. I added a tomato to a different bed without the red mulch and it seems to be growing faster (?!)
So I broke off the starts and planted it…an experiment
The blueberry bushes have never really thrived in the garden – they were planted in March 2013 and are still a year out from producing (hopefully) fruit. The blueberry below is Brigitta.
