The garden is in. It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that everything has been planted. Where we live, there is approximately 90 days in between the frost free dates to grow as much food as possible. This year though, I hope to experiment with some cool weather crops and a cold frame to extend our season into the fall a little bit longer.
Here is how our garden is growing this week (you can check out last week here):
Little tomatoes are growing despite the difficult spring weather these plants endured. We have six different varieties of tomato plants, some 60 planted in total.
Celery transplants are in. Also seeded in this bed are chard, cucumbers that will (hopefully) trellis up and melons.
Baby collard leaves.
Spinach is getting bigger. Time to seed a second planting elsewhere.
We have 12 raised 8'x4' beds in the back of our yard, with more plantings around the perimeter of the grass, sitting area, front yard, side yard and community garden plot.
More tomatoes, and beyond that our strawberry patch on one side and herb garden on the other.
