It’s been more than a month since I published a blog. Lots has happened! I harvested garlic and braided it. Not a braid to show at the farm market, but I’d never done it before. I was also pleased with the size of the bulbs. Yum. I’ll use the biggest one to plant in August for next year’s garlic.
I’ve been getting all kinds of greens–salad greens, beet greens and the chard. I’m mighty glad to see the summer squashes and zucchinis coming on. It will provide some variety!
I have had some lovely beets this spring and have taken the chicken wire down since the rabbits don’t bother the leaves too much once they’re larger. I’m getting lots of herbs and flowers and enjoying having cut flowers in the house again.
The small AFAC plot has grown exponentially since the last picture and has a good sized zucchini. We’ve also had lots of lettuces and radishes and cilantro from it. In fact, volunteers in the garden, Gerda and Mike took three pounds of fresh produce to a distribution center and it got sent out with people that very day.
The large outside garden is mostly flowers this year, though I am waiting for the blackberries to come on. The asparagus is doing well in its second year and the flowers are all looking pretty good.
Last weekend I did a LOT of weeding in preparation for a week of rain. So all gardens are in order (at least the ones I take care of) and now I’ll await harvesting. Have a lovely week!
