Garden in June


Here are a few shots of the garden at the end of June.




This is the new bed, currently planted with corn, tomatoes, beans, overflow peppers, zucchini, and pumpkins.  I am shocked at how well the corn is doing.


It gets noticeably taller every day.


The lettuce is doing well too.  I pulled a bunch and made up several bags of salad mix.


The sugar snap peas always do great.  It's funny, the Dwarf Grey (in the back) are actually taller than the Oregon Sugar Pod.  


Along this side of the old garden is endive (a first for me), broccoli, kale and spinach.


This is probably the last year for strawberries in the old garden.  It's almost a daily chore to cut back the runners.  I started with 4 small plants and now look at them!  I would love to build a raised bed as a permanent home for them.


Another new variety for me this year was Purple Plum Radish.  I don't care for radishes, but my hubby enjoys them twice year... when they first come up in the spring and a final crop in the fall.  He like the mild taste of these, but they just didn't get very big.  I ended up pulling most of them waiting for them to get to a decent size.
 
With it taking so long to warm up, I was really getting worried about how everything was coming along.  However, after looking at last years June garden I'm feeling much better about it.

  1. One of the things I am loving even more about blogging is being able to look back on my blog posts and see what was going on the same time of the year , but a few year's back. It really does help with life's perspective on so many levels.

    Your garden is looking very productive and fresh lettuces for salad, blessings abundant !
