Backyard Garden Plot Pictures – Week 22 of 52
Check out how tall the peas are getting. There are blossoms all over the place! We planted sugar snap peas along the fence and I cannot wait for some fresh peas.
The wood pallet garden is looking great. So far we have harvested endive and speckled Romaine lettuce. Next up will probably be the spinach.
The raised garden beds are coming along. The beans I planted in the first box are finally coming up but the broccoli in the box behind the beans are not looking so hot.
I am becoming a little frustrated with those garden beds and I’m not quite sure what to do. Nothing seems to want to grow in them. I did have mint and oregano in those spots last year and am now wondering if it’s why I’m having problems.
I finally got around to tying the pea vines to the teepee poles. The weight of the pea vines was just to heavy this year and they needed a little help. Oh course had I not planted so stinkin’ many, they would have climbed up the poles easily. Oh well.
The greenhouse. I’m still working on getting some more pots for my peppers.
The potato towers are doing surprisingly well. The potato leaves are starting to pop out the sides of towers 2&3. You can read my recent post on them HERE.
A view from the upper deck.
I’ll have to try and get a close picture next time, but the fava plants are doing pretty well. They are not as big as I had hoped, but I did spot a few blooms on the plants last week so it looks like we will stay get a mini crop of beans.
The raspberry patch.
It’s a major jungle down there and the bees are buzzing around like crazy so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
And last but not least, the container herb garden. All our herbs — Oregano, Sage, Parsely, Rosemary, and thyme are doing great. Especially the thyme, it has really taken off.
How is your garden coming along?
Has the weather started to warm up yet in your neck of the woods? It’s stil raining off and on and the temps are in the mid 60’s. C’mon sunshine, I know you are out there somewhere.
