I've got the winter veggies finishing up, spring ones coming up, and some things still to plant. Here's a little photo tour of my garden at the end of April
Almost ready to harvest is
|I've been picking strawberries for awhile now and having a great harvest.|
|Still getting lettuce, although the days are hot so I'm sure that's soon to end.|
|Jerusalem artichokes are strong. The greens make good goat treats.|
|Hoop house cabbage is flowering. This is the first time|
I've had cabbage flower & I'm looking forward to seeds.
|Kale is flowering and Swiss chard will soon too.|
|I've got two kinds of tomatoes this year. I got seeds from|
Kris for an heirloom Italian paste, and bought Homestead
tomato plants (also heirloom) from the feed store.
|With the tomatoes I have basil that I started early. Also marigolds|
and multiplier onions, although neither of these are up yet.
|Cucumbers are sprouting|
|As are cantaloupe|
|and bush beans|
|I didn't get many slips from my sweet potato, so|
maybe I'll buy some more if I can find them around.
|My raspberry plants are leafing out beautifully and starting to|
bloom. So I have high hopes of a good year for raspberries!
Behind the raspberries you see what looks like a blank field of dirt. We just finished planting pasture forage there for the does.
Planted but yet to make an appearance: popcorn, okra, onions, potatoes, and sunflowers.
How about you? Is your gardening season in full swing yet? Or are you still waiting on the weather? Do tell!
