All this humid and wet weather has been doing wonders for the veggie gardens and I am going to go out on a superstitious limb here and say that I think it is going to be a great year.
As of today my 30' x 40' food garden has given us strawberries, radishes, lettuce, spinach and I saw the first peas ready to pick this afternoon.
Garden roll call, in sections:
Gold rush bush bean, Scarlet runner bean, Green bush bean, and Purple podded pole bean
Peas, carrots, radishes, lettuce, spinach, red and white onions, strawberries
Broccoli and cauliflower
Tomatoes - cherry, sungold, evergreen, red brandywine and yellow pear
Peppers - hot, green and red
|The first few tiny tomatoes got my attention today. Since I misplaced the wooden popsicle sticks|
that told me which tomato plant was which, I can only guess the variety shown here.
|My spinach, carrots, white onions, radishes and some marigolds thrown in |
to ward off hungry mammals.
|I am happy with the runner beans this year even though they got off to a slow start thanks to the |
hungry woodchuck. My new garden mantra: fencing, fencing, fencing!!!!
