This is my vegetable garden – photo taken first week of June.
Normally its the May 24 weekend (Queen’s official birthday) that gardens go in, but we were a week early owing to the warm spring weather. By the first week in June the peas were up and the tomato transplants were well settling in.
And this shot was taken ~ 5 weeks later on July 13th.
We’ve been eating lettuce, radishes, strawberries, lots of peas and a few cucumbers so far.
The tomatos look promising….many flowers and small fruit…the row of really tall plants are Beefsteak Tomatoes – the kind where one slice will make a big sandwich. The shorter row to the right of those are Ultra Girl Tomatoes and Plum (Italian) Tomatoes. The Ultras should finish early. The Plum are great for slicing into coins and dehydrating for winter enjoyment.
In the foreground are cucumber plants – lots of flowers and fruit forming. We had a few early ones in the weekend salad.
The peas – crawling up the chicken wire on the right side of the garden – are really really really prolific. Zillions! A great snack is to just eat them right out of the pods in situ!
It’s amazing that such bounty originated from about a handful of seeds.
The poor performers so far – my onions are crap – only one sprouted from the whole bag. And my ‘premium’ Pumpkin seeds did nadda in the garden. Thankfully I only planted a few in the garden – I planted the rest in the manure pile and they are coming along.
