Wow! The whole summer flew by and I forgot to show the progress of the garden.
So much of the produce has come and gone that there is not much to show at this point but we are still eating from it and a few things are just coming into their own. Tonight we had spinach, beets, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions and potatoes from the garden for dinner. I have white onions in the crisper, too.
The deer ate the strawberries right down to the stems and the blueberries produced two berries this year. No raspberries at all. None of the garlic came up. Lettuce did well but the deer snacked on that, too. Radishes did like every year - about half a dozen created radishes and the rest went right to seed. A re-planting did even worse with no radishes produced at all. Green beans did good, peas did fair and sugar snap peas did dismally.
Successes are green onions:
Potatoes - this is the first time I have grown potatoes and I planted three kinds: purple, Yukon gold, russet:
Tomatoes - I planted two regular and one cherry tomato plants. They are not loaded but all have a few fruit and they are just starting to ripen:
and, finally, sweet corn - this is the first time I have grown corn, too. It is doing GREAT!
Look at these cobs!!!
We'll be eating on this garden for quite a while yet.
