Well, lets get into the pictures of the garden itself, then we'll see what today's harvest was like, and then notes to self.
Here is looking at the watermelon plants (bottom) and giant tomato plants (still green tomatoes, haven't seen any color yet). Also, saw a baby watermelon, it was about an inch big. Awww....
Here are the peas and carrots. You can see the two spots I stood in among the peas. :) I did a little bit of weeding on the right of the carrots.
On the left side is the cucumber plant then the potato plants and piles of weeds and lettuce.
Here are the chicks & hens, and my 2 strawberry plants.
Here are the raspberry plants...one of them didn't fair as well as the other.
On to today's harvest!!!
My potatoes...White Kennebuk potatoes...They are pretty decent size! :) Might have 'em for dinner!
...and carrots...(they still require a bit more time)
The cucumbers I picked this morning!!!
And, the peas and carrots in the sink...resting and rinsing off in cool water.
However, I do still have...
Notes to self:
-Peas grew to be about 3 feet "tall," please trellis them next time.
-Once again, space things out more, things grow super duper well here.
-Thin the carrots like you should.
-Remember that a mix of vanilla and water makes a good repellent for the stupid beeping gnats.
-Garden first thing in the morning, the wasps/hornets (and other bugs I suppose) feel less active.
-Don't plant lettuce, your not going to eat it.
-Don't plant onions, you probably won't eat them either.
-Have more plans for the cucumbers or know more people to give them to.
Good day today! Finishing my lunch, then off to the outside to brace up my new set of shelves and paint it white. Don't worry...I'm going to post about it next probably. :)
