After a day yesterday of gray clouds and constant rain, we've got sunshine and a delightful breeze today. No problem getting pictures to document the garden today.
Going way back . . .
The First of March
The First of April
The First of May
The First of June
The First of July
The First of August
And the First of September
Considering I'm trying to get the garden ready for winter early this year, there's still a lot of greenery showing today, isn't there?
However, I do have 8 (of the 26) raised beds completely cleaned, fertilized and tilled. Fertilized with the most wonderful, black compost Papa Pea has ever made!
The two cold frames in the back contain sweet peppers and slicing cucumbers. Our nights are getting cool enough that we're shutting them down at the end of the day.
The "New Plot" East of Raised Beds
I planted potatoes down this 40' stretch. The vines have mostly flopped over but are still showing a lot of green in comparison to the 20' row I planted in the field garden. Those vines are completely dead already. Why the difference?
As Much of a View of the Field Garden as I Can Get
The green you see is primarily Brussels sprouts, cabbage, sunflowers (looking bedraggled and not so sunny anymore) and pickling cucumber vines I'm in the process of pulling out.
By the first of next month, the garden should look very different. And I hope I'll be well on the way to having 90% of it ready for winter.
