Spinach seedlings that is..
And though I got them off to a late start this year and thankfully May showered us with some fine weather thye seem to be thriving well. It looks like we have some good sowing weather ahead too, so who can complain? I’ve been so busy getting my seed in the ground and still cleaning out the beds and adding even more raised beds. I needed to make some room for warm weather crops like peppers, eggplant and tomatoes. The onions are in and I’m thrilled the spinach and chard are looking good! I can’t wait to make a spinach frittata 🙂
I didn’t get my peas planted as early as they should go in the ground either, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed we’ll have a few more cool nights. The beans have just poked up out of the ground but so far no signs of scarlet runner beans on the teepee poles.
The garden is finally beginning to look like a garden. I had no idea what an undertaking I had taken on with this project. I’ll be hanging a sign this week.. ‘garden of weedin’ as I’ve never seen quite so much weed in one garden.. the worst of it being milkweed! Ugh 😦 But all in all, it’s finally taking shape. These are a couple of pics of where it began 4 weeks ago up until this week.
After two weeks of hauling out debris and weed!!
Planting begins… and trellis’s built and put into place.
Last weeks updated shot.. finally taking shape.
Today the rosemary, basils, tarragon, edible marigolds, thyme, sages, patchiouli and comfrey beds were established. AND I started my first grape arbor! After working in the fields all day.. those grapes had better pay off bigtime LOL 🙂
Have a great Memorial Day!
