How's everyon'e garden doing?

Post by Sonshine on Thu Jun 16, 2011 11:37 am

Ours is starting to really hit it's stride. I'm picking something just about every day, and for the veggies I haven't been picking yet, it looks like within a week they'll be ready. We're being over run with squash and cucumbers. Our tomatoe plants are loaded, just not ripe yet. We have several ears of corn that are starting to form. The pumpkins Joe planted last week have sprouted. All in all, I'm very pleased with our garden so far this year. We had a bit of trouble with our cabbage and lettuce. Next year I think I'll just plant some type of leaf lettuce, because I think it got too hot too fast here for the head type. It basically went to see before really forming much of a head. Our cabbage was unsalvable after the rabbits got into it.

Our blackberries are starting to ripen. Hope I can get them harvested before the birds get them. We also have a few raspberries on our raspberry bushes. Our blueberries are close to time to harvest them. We have them covered to prevent the birds from getting all of them. I may have to do the same thing next year with our blackberries.

He who cultivates his land will have plenty of food,
but from idle pursuits a man has his fill of poverty

We ave gotten ripe tomatoes so far but every thing else sort of stalled due to the dry spell. But after todays rain I am hopeful that it will pick back up. The corn got blown over by the winds but was starting to stand up by itself by dark. Smile

Mine's just starting to take off. The pea vines are loaded, but the peas haven't filled out yet. I noticed this morning when I went to feed the chickens that my spinach has bolted. Sad My tomatoes and peppers aren't really doing much yet, it just doesn't stay warm long enough to help them along. My sunflowers are 4ft. tall already, the chicks will be happy with those as a treat this winter.

I've got to start some more herbs, carrots, celery and bell peppers~~~what I had started earlier aren't coming along too well.
