2019 Growing Season

26 June 2019 - 02:49 AM

Wow, late June already and no posts.  We've had a pretty good season so far in the garden, even though a lot of the seeds haven't sprouted (looking at you, okra and beets) so N may have to get starter plants:

 

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries (3 types)
  • Blackberries (great yield so far)
  • Fava beans (lots and lots of these)
  • Snap peas, both green and purple
  • Carrots
  • New red-skinned potatoes!
  • Various herbs
  • Plus more Meyer lemons from our dwarf tree

And, our multigrafted apple tree actually has a few apples already.  The season is still young!
