Early June Garden Update 2009



The gardens are all growing marvelously! Here's our potato, squash, watermelon, garlic, cucumber and cantaloupe garden. Yeah, I MIGHT have pushed the envelope on how much I planted here - but it IS called square foot gardening for a reason, right? :) There's less weeds that is for sure! I didn't know the potato plants grew so big - this is the first time I've ever planted them.



Here's a glimpse of all three gardens and you can even see the rhubarb patch growing behind the strawberry patch in the background!



Yay for peas!! Look how many there are!!

Oh, I am so jealous, of your peas most of all! I planted peas and they came up beautifully, but I don't have my garden fenced and they all got eaten before they could flower. I don't know if it was the woodchuck, bunnies, or deer -- but I'm totally bummed because I love fresh peas. What are you using for support? They are so tall. Your garden is beautiful!

Berrybird - That is one thing we don't have to much of - wildlife. We do have hummingbirds - yay!:) And there are bunnies but I have never seen one inside the fence. I am use a few bamboo poles for supports - that's it! :)
