Just a quick status update for the garden. While a lot has been planted and all of the vegetables are growing, there still looks to be a lot more brown in there than green. Between this holiday and the next, I expect that to change quite a bit. Below is a quick picture of each of the beds along with a brief comment on progress of the inhabitants.
In here we have the onions in the foreground and peas in the background. Both are doing well and I think the peas should be blooming soon.
In this bed is the cucumbers (foreground) with the green beans and a basil plant.
Next up we have tomatoes in the foreground and along the left side of the picture. In the bottom right is where the radishes were. Up the right side is the Romaine lettuce, spinach and salad bowl lettuce.
I’m going to have a crowding issue in this one. Starting in the far left is two rows of Lima Beans. Bellow them on the left is Brussels sprouts. I’ll be thinning them down soon. In the bottom right is zinnias. Finally in the upper right of the picture is two more tomatoes.
In this bed I have zucchini in the bottom left, carrots across the top and sunflowers down the right side. I’ll drop those four zukes back to just two here in a bit.
Last but not least is the most shaded of the beds. Back here we have yellow squash across the top. Those eight plants will drop down to four soon and I’ll add the fence I hope to get them to climb. Below them are two of the extra tomato plants I couldn’t bring myself to throw out. Nothing else in planted here but I plan to put in some more lettuce and spinach for a second crop.
