The garden has been doing very well so far this year. We added two new boxes and dug a firepit in the middle. The strawberries have come and just about gone. It was close to three weeks from beginning to end. For the middle two weeks, I was picking a minimum of 4 cups a day! I tried a lot of new recipes, almost all of them were winners.
In addition to all the usuals: tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, kale, peppers, peas, beans and herbs, I like to try out a few new varieties in the garden each year. Last year it was corn and kale. Kale was a winner, the corn is out. This year we're trying out purple cauliflower, Adirondack Blue potatoes, purple-husked tomatillos and sweet potatoes. The first three are doing awesome; the sweet potatoes just started to do something, and only some of them. Next year I'm definitely doing more potatoes, they are so easy. The tomatillos have flowers everywhere, so we'll have to see how they taste.
Two of our three varieties of kale
The potato mound just started to flower
For the first time, my cilantro actually looks good
Lettuce followed by green beans and purple beans
The Juliet tomatoes have set fruit
So has the pepperoncini
There is one small cucumber, but dozens of flowers
Tomatillo with lots of flowers
The third kind of kale and basil
One of the tomato boxes in front of last year's compost pile; in that dirt are more and bigger tomato plants than those that I started in March! We are going to be swimming in tomatoes!
Red raspberries have just started as the strawberries are winding down
We also have tons of wild black raspberries
Our firepit is right in the middle of the garden boxes
