Garden Growth: May Edition

I’m a little behind in posting, but given the time of year that is to be expected!  That’s not to say I haven’t been writing, cooking, and photographing; I just haven’t had the time to sit down and meld everything into a fluid post.

You may remember me mentioning that this year I wanted to mulch the garden to reduce my time spent pulling weeds.  I’m 90% finished with that task and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Yes, a few weeds still pop up here and there, but nothing like the battle I underwent last year!  The layer of mulch has also allowed me to garden during this very wet Spring without sinking knee-deep into the mud!

Here’s the rundown of what I’ve got “growing on”.  The picture angles tend to jump around a bit, so I will try to make it least confusing as possible.

L-R sunflowers, peas, carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli

(taken from opposite end as first picture) radishes, lettuce, beets, and spinach, flanked by peas

 bush peas, carrots, lettuce (behind carrots), and the beginning of my brassicas

Full view of the left side of the garden.

L-R swiss chard, brussels sprouts (behind the chard), mustard greens, carrots/beets/spinach/scallions/celery (behind the mustard greens), beets, radishes, green sprouting broccoli, and romanesco broccoli

 Same veggies as mentioned above, just from a different view.  You can better see the small rows of carrots/beets/spinach and scallions.

The left side of this picture starts the tomato patch, everything to the right is the same as above.  The edge of the garden in the lower right corner is a row of sunflowers.

 L-R 5 rows of tomatoes, tomatillos, carrots (that have not sprouted yet), and ground cherries.

I plan on putting in my beans, squash, and cukes in the space after the ground cherries, but need to pick up some more variegated fencing for the addition I tilled.
