Garden 2008

The second year garden has a head of steam on it and seems to be doing quite well. I already have two crops grown, eaten, and done. Check out this year’s sowing:

  • eggplant
  • watermelon
  • squash (two varieties)
  • cucumber (for pickling)
  • potatoes
  • peas
  • bush beans
  • bok choy
  • cabbage
  • tomatoes (6 varieties – pig pen, josephine, early girl, cherry, …)
  • corn
  • lettuce (mescaline and butter crunch)
  • broccoli
  • beets
  • radishes
  • carrots
  • onion
  • garlic
  • hot peppers (3 varieties)
  • Jerusalem artichoke
  • strawberry
  • sunflower seeds
  • basil
  • cilantro (failed)
  • spearmint
  • pumpkin

I also have two nice flower beds and a third area beneath my sunflowers where I put some annuals.

The potatoes are going bonkers. The peas and cilantro are not going to make it, I think. My mescaline and radishes are already done for the season. I have also eaten some beets (two, the bulb and the greens), a strawberry, and some basil. I am not sure when the rest will bear for me.Let’s keep our fingers crossed. I have been watering with an occasional treat of worm compost tea.
