Each month I like to photograph the entire garden. Not only is it fun to document, but it’s simply amazing to be to see how much things can change in just a short amount of time.
The mini flower pallet garden I put together a few months ago has almost totally filled out and is now starting to cover the potting bench. The disobedient peas have decided not to cover the trellis I built, and the potatoes I planted in an old whiskey barrel are over flowing.
The bean teepees and hubbard squash are rockin’…
The Green Arrow English peas are about 1 month behind schedule, but hopefully we’ll be able to harvest them soon because I just planted a bunch of squash seeds and they’re going to need a home here shortly.
Now that the tomato problem has been fixed, there is plenty of room to move about the greenhouse.
This is the beginning of the heirloom pumpkin patch. I planted seeds about a month ago and hopefully by the end of September, this place will be covered with green vines and a rainbow of pumpkins. We planted orange, white, green and tan ones. The Girl is planing on having a harvest party this fall and is super excited about this space.
The raspberry patch is a total dud this year. The canes are short, and weak, and I have zero expectations of a large harvest from them this year. Hopefully the raspberry canes will be more abundant next year.
However, the strawberries that were planted on the right, are coming along nicely.
And lastly, the potato towers and rhubarb and nice and green. I’m taking that as a sign everything is going well.
So how’s is growing in your neck of the woods?
Is your garden growing like mad? Are things growing like you hoped they would?
