I’ve been silent for several weeks watching the garden grow. I find that I have not bee good at following my garden plan to a “T”; but that’s how I roll. Here’s a quick update
Salad Greens – harvested and enjoyed – could even continue to succession plant. I think it’s time for me to pull the 1st set as they have bolted and gone to flower – maybe I’ll harvest some seeds from it to keep though.
Sugar Snap Peas – 4ft high now, they have climbed nicely up the chicken wire and are start to blossom. It shouldn’t be too long now.
Onions – they are growing fine. the “Green onions” are great and have been harvested and succession planted – “big onion” are growing slowly but well.
Pole Beans – Planted and sucession planted in early and late May sprouted and are a couple of inches tall
Paddy Pan Squash & zuchinni- Planted 3 & 2 and they are small
Potatoes – growing strong and I continue to hill them
Tomatoes – growing well with walls of water around them. I am leaving on for now because the weather here is not consistent.
Peppers – 2 in walls of water and 2 out – they are all alive and growing rather slowly. They are about 8-12 inches tall
Strawberries – green and starting to show berries – have to watch those birds!
Basil & carrots – Okay, a couple of carrot seed FINALLY sprouted although I have given up on them; we’ll just see what happens. Basil seed was set out and sprouted and the birds ate them so I planted more.
Cantelope – Planted 3 seeds and they have sprouted but will not do much now until the heat comes, my plan is to grow something around them in the meantime.
I still have a few things left to plant if I find the room or when I harvest those early spring crops (lettuces, snap peas, brocolli). I now need to devote time to weeding in the garden.
