Garden Update for 07/02/14

Here’s updated pictures of my garden one month later.  As you can tell my main garden has really taken off and we have had 11.5″ of rain in the last 10 days, 9 of those inches came June 26-29. I’ll take the moisture and my garden says thank you as you will see in the following pictures.

My main garden one month later. Beets fell victim to deer but everything else has grown by leaps and bounds.

Tomatoes are much taller than this picture but my potatoes are just crazy big and I can't wait to harvest when the time comes.

We’ve enjoyed the fresh lettuce, arugula, radishes, onion greens. peas and just recently I’ve picked my first carrots. Where others may live in a warmer climate up here in the Northern climates things have been pushed back a month later in the growing season because of the frigid cold winter we all experienced. It’s been a good season for lettuce growing because of cooler temps though. I’m on my third planting of Arugula and I’m planting Butter Crunch lettuce now and they’re both doing so well.

I’ll be having some zucchini, cucumbers and more carrots this 4th of July weekend. Cucumbers are about one week away but I have two hills that are loaded with blooms and my tomatoes are starting to come on as well and loaded with blossoms.
