Here's a bit of a garden tour. I was looking at pictures on Friday night, and realized that they were taken a month prior. So on Saturday I went out and took some photos to show what some of the veggies looked like a month down the road. It's pretty amazing!
This was a patch of overwintered kale that was flowering and just about finished. You can see the little chard in the bottom right corner.
A month later we have not one (made out of the old fuel tank stand) but two bean towers. And look at the size of that chard now. The tallest tower is 10 feet high and both are covered with some of our old electric sheep netting (fence).
The beans are up! There is a squash in the center of each tower. It's yet to be seen whether that was a good idea or not:)
See those tiny little lettuces planted about 6" apart, just above the center of the picture?
Look at them now (that's mizuna in the foreground). I've picked and sold about 40 lettuces out of there already.
Here's the cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage section. The peas are under that narrow strip of mesh in the upper left corner.
What a difference! Look at those weeds, Cathy you need to come back and weed it again!
The Kale behind the basil hoops is doing great. The basil is not doing so great, the only failure so far this year.
And those peas, I saw the first flowers on them yesterday. Loves me some snap peas!
The red cabbage
Softball sized cabbages forming!
The plot that used to be gladiolus, and then turned into an overgrown mess. I got it cleaned out and here are furrows to plant potatoes in.
And now the potatoes are planted, and up!
This picture is a little older, May 8
But look at those turnip greens now! The only thing is that no one seems interested in them. I'm going to have to make a fact sheet to put up at the market. They are very high in Vitamin K.
This last Sunday most of this was for sale at the market. We had lettuce, salad greens, kale, chard, turnip greens, spinach, arugula, garlic scapes and a few herbs. In a week or two there should be broccoli (if we don't eat it all) zucchini, cabbage, peas, fennel, and maybe carrots too.
