We've decided to keep a picture record of the garden progress this season so at the first of every month, I'll take a picture from the same angle.
|Raised bed garden before|
Here is how it started in early March.
Cleaned out and ready to go...
|Raised bed garden after|
Here is is today, growing beautifully!
We have herbs and were able to harvest a few for use this week.
|Okra raised bed|
Okra is starting to pick up now that it's a bit warmer but it still has a ways to go. Once the hot temps get here, it will explode like last Summer.
Covered in blooms, should be a bumper crop again this year, times two this time around!
Zucchini is getting HUGE! And of course squash blossoms all over. We guess this is why gardeners are sick of zucchini by the end of the season? ha!
We hope we have that trouble. 2nd Man is excited to do some cooking (zucchini bread here we come!)
And we have our first tomatoes of the season! The other plant in the bed (a different variety) has blossoms on it as well.
There are eggplants coming in! Three or four little fruits on each plant.
And speaking of prolific, the cukes on the trellis are COVERED in blooms and tiny cucumbers...
|Cucumber raised bed|
Did we say big? Yep, it's flowing out of the raised bed like a river of cucumber vine! Not sure what to do, I was thinking of maybe getting something to elevate this part off the ground so maybe we'll end up with the most possible.
We are 100% satisfied with the garden this year. After some seasons of hits and misses, we may have just found the method that works for us. We'll see!!
