May in Bloomington, CA

Post  Lindacol on 5/19/2012, 9:37 am

My garden is mostly doing great. Here is bed 1 this week. I took the potatoes out of the left(north) end because ants got them – small be delicious harvest. I will be replanting more corn I think there. Also in this bed is corn, a couple of squares of lettuce, 1 of mesculin mix, 2 of carrot week carrots, garlic, beans and in back tomatoes and a couple of cucumbers.

Bed 2 is my problem bed. Not much change in the past month. The garlic is really sad looking. The tomato, bell peppers and a delecata squash were my leftover seedlings that were put here after the cucumbers died. The kale is looking better but way behind what is in bed 3 planted at about the same time. Radishes are coming up.


My tabletops, beds 3 & 4 are overflowing!

Bed 3 has red onions, lettuce, kale, swiss chard, a gypsy pepper and delicata squash.


Bed 4 has carrots, walla walla onions, bell peppers, butternut squash and a small watermelon tucked in the corner.

How long ago were they planted? They look great.

Sadly, your bed 2 looks familiar.

Bed 1, the block bed, I started last year and has had something in it all the time since then.
Bed 2 was started last fall
Bed 4 was built January 20th, this year, and bed 3 was about a month later. The onions were the bareroot small starts from HD but the most of the rest were from seed. The garlic was put in last fall.

Great looking beds. I am definitely doing tabletops when I eventually get settled.
