Vegetable Garden update
The garden is ripping these days. The NW weather has been doing us good so far. I thought I would do a little update. So here are some before and after shots. Enjoy!
Golden Hops Before and After...These things are crazy big!
Looks like we need to resurrect the skulls!
Here is the pie patch...raspberries, blueberries and rhubarb.
Some close ups of the raspberries...hopefully today I get out and pick some...they are so abundant you can't even walk between the rows. I think next year we have to eliminate a row...sad but must be done.
So stoked on these blues....last year was the first year so not much fruit...year two looks promising.
Garlic Scapes. Having them for dinner tonight. Once the scape makes it all the way around to form a loop they need to be cut off so the plant redirects its energy down to the bulb. Probably will be harvested in about a month.
Tomatoes and beans here.
No more cover.
Trellis about a third done.
Love the reuse of the welded wire fencing we have left over from the chicken run.
Snap Peas...will they reach the top?
YEP! These are amazing...few more days and they will be ready to eat. Lots of peas this year. Also in this bed is some squash.
Here we have our pickling cucumbers. Haven't done pickles in a long time...hope this works out.
So there you have it....garden is hitting on all cylinders....it is always nice to see the progress.
