Almost everything has been planted!
My wife and I have been working every free moment to get the garden together before we leave for the beach and there is more to do yet. So far we have planted the following in 8 foot rows in our raised beds:
- 7 rows of tomatoes
- 4 rows of peppers
- 1 row of sweet potatoes
- 1 row of white potatoes
- 1 row of snow peas
- 1 row of cucumbers
- 3 rows of cabbage
- 1 row of kale (that needs to be harvested and frozen very soon)
- 1 row of eggplant
We also have planted a zucchini hill and a brand new 20 foot row of asparagus!
We are expecting big things from our 3 beds of strawberries, and we might get an amount of cherries this year that is worth carrying inside. There are flowers on the blackberry and raspberry vines, and the grape vines are growing again. The apple tree had a few flowers as well.
There is too much to do, so you might not get pictures for a couple weeks yet. The tomatoes need trellising before I leave, the grass will probably have to be mowed twice in the next week due to the amount of rain, and then there is work and packing…wish me luck.
Here’s a teaser picture from about a week ago:
