How's everybody doing with their gardens?
My turnips are up and need to be thinned. My beets are up and will need to be thinned in a few days. My purple carrots are up. My peas are up and doing well. And my potatoes are starting to poke through. I'm waiting on my parsnips and 3 varieties of regular carrots to come up. My potatoes are starting to poke through. My strawberries are starting to blossom, my rhubarb and blackberries are doing well. My yellow zucchini, green zucchini, corn, butternut squash, pie pumpkins, brussel sprouts, purple cabbage, celery and 3 varieties of tomatoes are in.
I'm going to get my first planting of beans done this afternoon and I'll plant some cucumber seeds. I've got some cucumber plants to do, too. The rest of my cucumber seedlings will be planted in small pots to take into work for folks there. I'll get my savoury planted in pots today, too. Then I just have my dahlias, canna lilies, amarylis and nasturtiums left to put in. So I should get all that done by tomorrow afternoon. And then I have some weeding to do in my flower beds, as well as continuing to work towards turning the front 'lawn' into all garden.
Four weeks from now, I'll plant another set of beans. And 4 weeks after that, I'll plant a final set. And about that same time, I'll have another round of peas to put in. The peas rarely make it into the house, let alone get cooked. I just love them raw.
I got the rest of my herbs in and there is a little bit of room left if my neighbours want to put something in. Dill, garlic, mint, lemon balm, tarragon, oregano (which needs to be divided), cilantro, chives, summer savoury, several varieties of basil, rosemary, sage, curled and Italian parsley and some lavender.
I can't wait for homemade pizza with several varieties of basil.
