2014 July Garden - Soil update

 The garden was off to a slow start, but hot temps and high humidity have it growing like crazy now.  I have to admit, I am in love with this years garden.  

 

The soil is AMAZING.  If you have followed me for awhile, you may remember that I have been implementing a new garden method.  This is season 3 and so far every year has been better than the last.  I spend about 20 minutes a week weeding, and have yet to find a non-welcome garden insect.  I do, however, share the space with ladybugs, bees, earthworms, and Daddy-Long-Leg spiders.


Onions, broccoli, and lettuce.  Some of the lettuce has begun to bolt, but we are still eating lots.


My rhubarb is having it's second wind.  Good thing, I didn't get near enough frozen this spring.


Pole beans with carrots behind them. 


After freezing lots of cilantro, I let it go to seed.  I am going to save some as coriander and use the rest for next year.


Lavender!  It smells so good!  I started this from seed last year, and look at it now.  


This is the second year for these carrots.  I actually missed them and when they started coming up this spring I decided to let them go and collect the seeds.


If you read my post the other day, I apologize for my gripes.  Today is looking much better.  A friend of ours is able to fix it.  Nathan will take it over this weekend.  The parts for the truck repair came in and that's what Nathan is working on tonight.  We also received the new bar for the chainsaw.  Let the wood cutting recommence.

  1. It all looks lovely. Are the carrots from last year still edible? Mine got lost in the grass. Ugh! I am considering mowing the area and hoping it will all come back up. Hahaha.
