Growing: tomatoes, green beans, potatoes, lettuce, grapes, zucchini, fall squash, cucumbers, beets, carrots, strawberries, chard, sweet peas, arugula, herbs of all sorts
Gave up on: broccoli – it bolted right away… I should have planted it earlier
Above, the first of the tomato flowers are out. Below is a volunteer squash, peas and potatoes on the left, poppies, lettuce, tomato and lettuce on the right.
Digging for spuds! Below are the volunteer strawberries I’ve been finding around the yard and transplanting into the garden.
Above is the tomato bed in early May – below the same bed in late June.
Above – peas! At last! Below…something took a bite of my apple. My one and only apple…time to invest in some netting. I had a similar situation with the pumpkin last year.
The garden spends a good amount of time shaded by fir trees so it is a little slow to launch but things are picking up momentum and I’m looking forward to some garden meals soon.
