Memorial Day Garden Update

Post  Garden_State on 5/31/2010, 11:51 am

Everything is growing well and vigorously. Couldn't be happier with the garden so far.


Overview


Potatoes


Trellis Box (String Beans, Tomaotes, Zuchinni, Cukes, Peppers, Basil, Catnip)


Trellis Box 2 (Tomatoes, Watermelon, Canatloupe, Brocolli, Lima Beans, Eggplant)


Broccolli and Carrot Bed (might be getting to hot soon for the Broccolli)


Broccolli Closeup (only head forming out of 9 plants)


Strawberries


Compost Pile (need my frontend loader to turn it!!!)


My Garden Helper (chases the deer from the yard...Good Boy!!!)

Hope everyone is having great success this year. Weather has been great here in NJ, 80's to 90's last few days with no clouds. The garden has been taking off.

All the Best,

Pete

Looks great up there! I ate my first strawberry today. I was going to take a pic but i just couldnt wait. Believe me it was tiny, but was nice and red and sweet. My strawberry box is not doing as well as yours, i have a few beautiful plants, and others that are dying (ive already taken a few out that i had lost all hope on). I just added the straw today, maybe i should have done that earlier.

I also only have one head out of 8, however 4 of those were planted later and are much smaller. I used burlap as shade cover over the broccoli & lettuce last year when it got real hot and had a pretty sucessful summer, at least with the lettuce. It wasn't touching plants i made like a tent.

I feel like there are a million snow peas out there waiting for my skillet. I need to help them to their destination soon!

I might take a few photos to share later.

Oh I forgot to add your helper is adorable!

Looks great!! But what is that I see all over your garden???

Shadows? Doesn't there have to be sun to have shadows??

Snow Pea blossoms in Western Washington on Memorial Weekend.


This is my Broccoli (underplanted with mixed lettuce)

The weekend isn't a total loss.....

I turned this Swiss chard .......

Into this one pot meal. It isn't BBQ but it is very good. Turned Strawberries and rhubarb into a crisp with lavender cream for dessert.

Deborah.....who would have rather had the sun but made a celebration of what she got

I can't believe this is your first year - what a fantastic garden!

This is my 1st yr but I only did one 4x4 box.

I love doing square foot gardening!

Happy Gardening..........

Looks great. How long has the broccoli been in there? I planted mine from seeds a while ago, and they aren't nearly that big.

Broccolli has been in since early April, from transplants. Started a bit late to start from seed. I am starting to plan now for fall broccolli and when I need to start the seeds inside.
