Everything is growing very well in our garden. We had some torrential rains blow through here right after we planted the seeds and I was pretty sure that all the seeds had washed away. To my delight, there are still plenty there!
Asparagus, we just planted this this year, so that’s why it looks like that. It’s a funny looking plant. I think there are 6 in there, maybe 4.
This is the side garden entrance, through the “orchard.”
Bush Beans. We bought these as plants, but we also planted a bunch of bean seeds along the fence there.
Potatoes. We planted the front box first and the back box a couple weeks later. They are starting to poke through in the back box. As soon as they get a bit larger we’ll cover the dirt with hay.
Our strawberries are about to explode!
There’s a few renegade potatoes in the squash bed. Apparently we missed a few when we were digging them up last year.
Strawberry and Chocolate planted the marigolds for me. They are still in transplant shock, but should perk up soon.
Look at this amazing grape tomato plant. It’s going to give me a ton of salad tomatoes!
We found the grapes we want to buy to grow over the entry trellis. We haven’t found a trellis yet though. Mr. Taffy bought a couple Groupon’s for a local nursery so we were able to buy a couple older rhubarb plants and some pumpkin starts, ours didn’t take. We also found artic kiwi at Lowe’s, 1 male and 2 female. I am so excited about this! We haven’t planted them yet. You’ll get to see them in my next garden post!
So happy to be able to grow some of our own food!
