Mostly pictures this time...
It has been a heck of a year for gardening. It started out cold and wet, then super hot and dry, and now it's back to cold and wet. But I am finally getting my seedings planted!
Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkin plant, all by itself (it needs the space!) and snow peas (to add nitrogen to Mr. Giant's soil)
Mammoth Gold pumpkin and shell peas (scattered throughout the pumpkin and squash section - extra nitrogen in the soil, plus one of my friends REALLY likes shell peas) and Jack Be Little pumpkins (cute tiny pumpkins for the grandkids)
Delica squash (seeds harvested from a squash I ate last fall), wheat plant (from a 2020 lockdown experiment), and vine-type zucchini)
Bush-type zucchini, volunteer kale plant from last year (going to seed), basil
Bunch onions (the blooming ones are from last year, the smaller ones are volunteers), eggplant, parsley (last year's in back)
Leek (from last year), red peppers ("King of the North"), Hungarian hot peppers, jalepeno peppers
Artichoke plant experiment on deck - these guys may end up in the garden
Single surviving okra plant and a super happy hops plant
Tomatoes: My Marglobe plant died from damping off disease and was replaced with a Big Boy tomato plant (gift); the cherry tomato does not look happy, I may need to buy a replacement; the Roma tomatoes are hanging in there
The infant Carolina Reaper is growing slowly, but is still going strong
Happy raspberry patch (second year, growing like crazy!)
Grown up asparagus, storing up energy for next year's crop
That's all for today! I'll post again when the plants have grown up more. 😊
