This is a photo of the veggie garden from a week or so ago. The asparagus bed is on the left, then potatoes, garlic (with a few of last year’s leeks in the foreground), and the tomato tunnel on the right. The tomatoes have since been uncovered as they were getting too tall and were pushing against the plastic.
Under the row cover are my peppers and eggplant, which just couldn’t wait to be set out into the garden. I see I’ve got a few mini-peppers out there, so they seem to be dealing with the lower temperatures just fine. The three sisters bed in the foreground is looking slug chewed and sad. In fact, the little buggers ate both of my cucumber plants right to the ground, so I’ve had to go buy replacements. The squash has bounced back a bit after a couple of days of sun, though, and some are even getting ready to flower.
The lettuce is doing relatively well…
We’ve got an abundance of gooseberries (though the chickens love to jump and snatch them off the bushes, so we’ll see what we end up with).
The apple tree that was given to us by a friend not only survived transplanting, but is fruiting in earnest.
Strawberries and rhubarb – yum, yum!
Here are a few shots from around the rest of the yard:
Lucky likes to keep me company while I weed (they’re one thing that seem to relish this weather!).
Fingers crossed that the sun will make an appearance this long weekend. Happy Canada Day!
