I am almost a week behind in my garden update, but like harvest Monday and WIP Wednesday its better late than never right.
We had really wet weather in week 6 in fact it rained for 5 days straight. I wasn’t too upset about that since it hadn’t rained in a week before that so the garden was in need of a good soak. The downside too all the rain is that now the weeds have completely overtaken my garden. I was doing such a good job until the mosquito problem and then I was doing an okay job and now......ITS REALLY WEEDY!! Oh well As long as I can find the veggies through the weeds I will be okay. I am going to try and weed a bit tonight since it is finally not a big sloppy mud pit out there.
Here is the main garden at week 6
Everything is really taken off. Here are a few little highlights
This some of the broccoli I started in door. The leaves are huge, but nothing has started broccolifying yet...LOL
cabbage is starting to head
Onion to the right broc, cauli and cabbage on the left...weeds...everywhere... :(
Pak choi is ready to harvest I think. I read that you can start to take the outer leaves as soon as they are 1.5inch wide...so we shall see
Strange flowers coming up in herb plot
Raspberries are starting!!!
Mixed row beets in the front, then spinach, radish, lettuce and carrots way in the back
