Last night the lighting was just right for me to get out and snap a few photos of the vegetable garden. I also took photos of the flower gardens, but I’ll show those to you on a different day. It ended up being a rather large set of photos so I’ll ignore the words (mostly) and skip straight to the pictures.
It's time to do the first thin on the onions
Peas are finally taking off, but not flowering yet
Carrots and beets are planted under the peas
Squash was just put in and isn't taking off because of the colder weather. Give it time.
The tops of the raspberries fell over the wires in an early Spring rain. I'm leaving them alone and it isn't effecting the flowers too much.
Potato beds need to be completely filled now
Broccoli, Cabbage & Cauliflower are looking wonderful.
We are now harvesting lettuce and the arugula needs to be pulled
This is one of 5 strawberry beds. I think we officially have too many strawberries
Not to leave my son's garden out. This is the right side with squashes, sunflowers, lettuce, rogue potatoes and peas.
The left side of my son's garden. This is broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, peas and beets.
Yesterday my agenda included weeding the winding pathway through the garden. That didn’t work out so well for me. I worked like crazy to make the entertaining spaces around the garden look decent. I’m hosting my girlfriends for brunch on Sunday. If it is nice we will be eating outside. Garden paths could wait.
