2014 Garden pics

Post  greatgranny on 7/24/2014, 11:16 pm

Some pics of the garden's progress:

Snowpeas in foreground (still producing despite the heat)  Parsnips and Danver carrots behind.


First attempt at sweet potatoes


Taken from the north side facing south. Total of 6 boxes.


View from the front of my house.  


Potato Onions, Garlic, tomatoes by the trellis - this was taken in June.  Onions and Garlic are now harvested.


Butter Crunch Lettuce (still going strong)  Melons on trellis - they now have babies.  


Baby Carrots and Beets.  Already harvested and froze quite a few beets.  Am planting more where the garlic was.  The baby carrots are not doing well.  Other years they get bigger than baby carrots.  I think that particular box might not be where it likes to be.  Had them in another location for 3 years that got more shade during the hottest part of the day and also was easier to keep the moisture even.

Thanks.

Living in a heavily wooded area means that I can plant in my front yard without the neighbors having a fit.

The older I get the harder it is to keep up with all the yard work but isn't that what family it for? (come help Grandma) That's why I changed to SFG so I wouldn't have to work so hard. Took lots of time and hard work to get it built but now it's easy.

Lucky you! I have a volunteer tomato plant in the front yard flower garden and my husband keeps wanting to take it out!

We have gone way too far with rules regarding private property.  I realize that there are some who abuse the neighborhood with a messy yard but most people don't.  Fine the messy yard and charge them for a yard "do over" and leave the rest of the people alone.  Okay, I guess I can say this because I don't live in a town or city.

I would share some with you but I am quite sure it would be a wilted mess by the time it got to your house. 

I'm getting a bit tired of it and have been giving lots to kids and grandkids.
