My garden is looking promising, even with our short growing season and the excessive rain we have gotten this year. I see buds or flowers on almost every plant and I’m really excited to see what kind of yield I can get!
Everything has sprouted, except the rhubarb. I’m not sure why, but the rhubarb just never came up. Today I weeded it and turned the soil. I planted some green beans in the 4×4 box so it didn’t seem like a waste. There is still plenty of time, so I think the beans will do well.
I had 3 leftover tomato plants that I put in near the cucumbers and they are doing amazing. The tomatoes I planted in the pots are drowning from all of the rain. They just don’t have enough drainage and we got over 10″ of rain in June, 4″ came all at once! Just last night we got another inch of rain. I have not watered the garden since I first planted it.
The pumpkins and zucchini are growing rapidly and I have high hopes for them. Last year something ate most of the buds off of the zucchini, so I’m hoping we have better luck this year with a better fence.
I also have sweet peppers, broccoli, carrots, herbs, and asparagus that are all doing well. I must say, I’m pretty proud! I even picked my first green pepper today. I’ve been feeling very lucky to have this distraction to keep me extra busy. Last night we had a beautiful rainbow after the rain. What a beautiful property we have!
More updates to come soon! Thanks for reading!
