The Gardens Are In!!!

Almost one month to the date after arriving home from Japan, we can safely say that the gardens are officially all planted!! This morning I finished up the  two beds in Garden #2- a bed of kidney and great northern beans plus a bed of mixed greens, more carrots and beets.
Garden #1 consists of 25 – 18 foot beds and includes: asparagus, blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, cucumbers, zucchini, potatoes, peas, carrots, beets, onions, celery, spinach and lettuce. Garden #2 is 10 – 30 foot beds and includes: sweet potatoes, green beans, soup beans (kidney, northern and pinto), butternut squash, more tomatoes, carrots, beets, and greens. I also seeded an area with broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage seeds; hoping to get a fall crop of those.
Net on the project list is additional fencing  and gates to protect our crops from critters and woodchips in the aisles to keep the weeds at bay.
Never a dull moment!
Until next time,
