It was a very productive day too. Cukes all went in, as did the last of the Brussels sprouts, the pumpkin and the Sapomiel melon. Had I not flat run out of energy (and the rain was coming), I'd have seeded the second bed of corn as well. I also got some of the hanging flower baskets out and hung and planted two more.
A day of gardening is my happy place.
The runaway bed of strawberries. Oh so sweet and tender, I gobbled a bunch while weeding the bed today
'Connecticut Field' pumpkin and 'Sapomiel' melon
The potato boxes. The 'German Butterball' box on the right is ready for the next board to go on and to be buried a bit
Far bed (closest to fence) is the 'Cippolino' red baby onions and some errant shallots and potatoes left over from last year. Closer bed is thyme, some odd kind of celery, basil and 'Fall Gold' raspberries (difficult to see)
Inside the greenhouse
Overview, looking towards black plastic covered corn beds, pea fence (none of the 'Oregon Sugar Pod II' snowpeas has made it to the house yet) and two flower beds with lupine and pansies, pinks, monarda didyma bee balm, flax, poppies, nasturtiums and maybe foxgloves again this year. I like to keep my bee girls happy as well as add some colour to the veggie garden
Another overview, looking towards the pasture. Hope you're remembering to click on the pix!
The cuke trellis. 'Cool Breeze', 'Pearl', 'Miss Pickler' and 'Bush Pickle'. Gonna be a butt-load of picklin' going on this summer!
The first corn bed and the cuke trellis to the left of it. The narrow bed on the other side of the corn bed has 'Watermelon' radishes and a salad mix growing. Large bushy plant on the end of the corn bed is a centaura montana that the bee girls adore
Chives and blueberry 'Chippewa'. Blueberry 'Ka Bluey' is on the other side of the chives
