How is your garden doing so far?
I have had some successes and some failures so far. Pretty much like any year I guess. For the first time in a long time I had a near crop failure in head cabbage. Others have told me similar. Might have been the early spring heat. My cauliflower was so-so and it turned out to be a pretty darn good broccoli season. They are all spent now so out they went and in went a patch of green beans :
I plant as often as I take something out. In this picture I have baby pole beans growing up the stalks of giant sunflowers. This will be a living trellis for the beans up to about 10′ tall. Makes harvest easier. I have bush beans around the base of them that are almost over.
In other veggie news:
I just took out the sugar snap pea row. The part near the winter squash will be left unplanted as the squash will ramble all over that area shortly. The southern part of the row will get a planting of zucchini here shortly. The key to keeping the harvest going at maximum is to plant as soon as space opens up. We still have a ton of growing season left and the fall is the best time of the year for growing.
How is your garden doing? Send me any pictures, updates or questions. I like learning and seeing new things.
