The weather was in the 70’s this past week and the garden totally benefited from it. The beans in the box at the bottom of the photo above are doing great and the beet seeds I planted last week are just beginning to pop up between the rows of beans.
Lucy the puggle dog is seen inspecting the cabbage. One of the plants decided to bolt so I think I’ll feed it to the chickens.
Check out the pea teepees. The Girl and I have plans too pick peas and strawberries today. I don’t know how many there are, but I’m hoping for atleast a couple of pounds. Are you picking peas yet?

The pumpkin patch has finally been planted! Yee-Haw! It feels good to be finally done. Usually I like to plant our pumpkins on June 1st but this year we got off to a late start. Oh well, at least we are finished and now the neighbors can stop staring at my in bathrobe making little hills of dirt at all hours of the day. It’s done!
The overgrown raspberry patch. I keep telling myself I need to get in there and create some sort of raspberry trellis but I think it’s too late now. I’ll have to leave that chore until the end of the summer when all of the raspberry plants have died back.
Here is a view from the kitchen window.
And last but not least, the container herb garden and 2 of our rhubarb plants.
That is what is happening in our backyard today, what’s happening in yours? Are you picking peas and strawberries yet? Harvesting any Swiss chard?
