Garden 2010

June 8, 2010

This is our second year doing a garden at the house. Last year, I found the task a little stressful at first, but this year it’s been pure pleasure. It’s a little smaller this year, but will still give us (and probably our friends) everything we need. In terms of non-edibles, I added a super cure perennial garden near our side door and have been making some fun trellises with bamboo stakes. I also did a sunflower and morning glory patch to cover up our large compost pile.

Here’s what’s growing this year:

Radishes (already coming up, cucumbers, potatoes (about 50 plants), turnips, loads of tomatoes, kohlrabi, broccoli, happy rich (an Asian green), kale (2 types), collards, chard, beets, scallions, onions, garlic, red cabbage, peas, various beans, asparagus, peppers (Hungarian, yellow bell, and jalapenos), various lettuces.

For herbs we have cilantro, thyme, oregano, basil, sage, dill, chives, parsley, marjoram, and lavender.

Soon we’ll have our strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries again. We planed three raspberry bushes near the road that will hopefully provide some privacy when they get larger. Even our pear tree seems happier this year.
