Garden Pics

Post  landarch on 5/25/2015, 12:15 pm

Happy Memorial Day...thanks to our veterans.  Days and days of rain here in KC has everything soaked and saturated...sun finally popped out this morning so I decided to assemble some pics. 

Harvested Napa Cabbage from our spot in the community garden last week...lots of stir-fry since then.  Had to hire a crew and truck to help.


Slowly converting our community garden spot to SFG...peppers, onions leeks, napa cabbage, broccoli, romanesco broccoli, cauliflower, green cabbage, tomatoes, red Chinese noodle bean, bush lake green bean, cylindra beets,16 varieties of tomato, and wildflowers for the bee hives.  So far big winner is gorgeous Napa Cabbage.  So far big losers are broccoli and cauliflower.  Broccoli: some plants have already bolted and majority have yet to form a head.  No heads yet on cauliflower (just saw cauliflower for $4.99 in the store, ouch).  Green cabbage coming on strong.


4x8 box of cylindra beets in the community garden.  Had some early problems with moles but the bed has recovered...beets now are about 12" tall.

Beets, sweet peas, and tomatoes at the home SFG.





carrots (nantes, atomic red, kuroda)




cucumber seedlings (English Chelsea, muncher, beit alpha)





onions, garlic, sweet peas, cuke seedlins (in back)...along with asparagus started in containers.




experiment this year is to try peppers in grow bags filled with MM over reflective film.




Igloo lettuce...have not grown this variety before.




Igloo lettuce had a loose head-type form...leaves peel off in really cool orchid shaped cups perfect for lettuce wraps.




something new this year...planted 8 squares of sweet peas in the first two rows near the trellis in hopes of getting lots of peas before cukes and tomatoes need to take the four squares near the trellis.  So far so good...lots of peas picked...between the rains I cleared the first row of peas, planted tomato seedlings (sungold cherry, blue beauty, Japanese black truffle, carbon, Sioux, anna Russian, supersweet 100, sunrise bumblebee, black cherry, opalka, health kick) and cucumber seedlings.





pinched pepper plants starting to get "bushy".  These are Fat N Sassy green peppers.  From what I've been reading, these are exactly the same as King Arthur...a seed company was busted for marketing the same plant under different names (Fat N Sassy for the home garden, and King Arthur to commercial growers). 




Drilling more holes in cattle mineral tubs for drainage...also good for storing finished compost.




Colors in the garden are amazing...walkers low catmint will be covered with bumble and honey bees.


Carrots (have to image the colors below the soil).

Fantastic photos! Thanks for showing them. And a double thanks for introducing me to the Igloo lettuce. Can't wait to try it.
