Happy Monday morning!
Our garden is sprouting up all over the place, and I know some people asked for garden updates.
The yard has changed quite a bit since the last one.
First of all, Nick built our raised beds – and they turned out great. He is awe-some!
These first 2 beds don’t have anything coming up in them yet, but they are planted.
In the first bed (with the sand on the right):
- 2 types of radishes
- rainbow carrots
- romaine lettuce
- mixed green lettuce
The second bed was actually our third type of strawberries, but nothing is growing because Roxy peed in the plants when they were on the porch, using the box of berry starts as her own personal litter box. Wasn’t that sweet of her?
But the last two beds, our strawberry beds, are doing great!
And the fig bushes are going crazy.
They’re not ripe yet, but there are a ton of little baby figs on the bushes. I’m hoping they’ll ripen soon.
Our big tilled garden area is where the rest of our vegetables will be planted, and it’s just that – big. This spot is at least 5 times bigger than our gardening space we had at our last house.
In this spot, we have:
- tomatoes (lots!)
- green beans
So, in the past, we might have had 5-6 tomato plants at the old house.
Here? We planted 20. Over ambitious much? That was all my fault. When we went to the greenhouse around the corner to get plants, I just couldn’t resist the tomatoes!
Our berry bushes are really starting to come in, too, which is fun to watch. We won’t have any berries this year, but it will be fun to see them filling in this year.
With 20 tomato plants, I’m definitely planning on trying my hand at canning tomatoes and some different methods of freezing.
If you don’t see me or hear from me in August, now you’ll know why.
What’s growing in your yard?
