Summer Garden Week 6


I know I just posted last Friday but those pictures were from the previous weekend (for week 5). I'm trying to post each Sunday, so I'm only a day behind this week ;-)

Let's look at some 'before' and 'after' pics. . .

before:

green beans - this picture was taken just last weekend (I planted the seeds the weekend before that and this is them sprouting just after a week)

and after:

a week later.... look how much they have grown!

Grapes:

above picture was taken exactly one month ago on April 17th

Look at those beauties today :-)

Left view of the garden: taken May 1st

notice the sunflowers in the first bed

standing in the same place you now can't see the garden, the flowers have gotten so tall!

so I moved to the right slightly and took this shot.

the beans that were flowering (May 1st)

are looking like this! Actually he's the biggest bean I could see, the rest of them are very tiny, but it looks like we'll be having green beans very soon.

What else is going on - let's go see . . . .

peaches are doing well

plums even better :-)

my cilantro and dill are going C-R-A-Z-Y! I'm letting them go to seed!

My 10 rows of radishes! This is the first picture I have taken of them, but I planted them a couple of weeks ago. See the spinach ..... it's being eaten as fast as it grows. I got two little bunches like this but I didn't pick them because they are full of holes - nasty bugs!

So, how's your garden growing?

Looks delicious! Have you tried soapy water on the spinach to prevent the bugs from eating it? I didn't have a problem with bugs eating the spinach, it bolted on me this past week though:( I'll try again in august-September for a fall harvest

Looking awesome Denise!

Love all your space! And my spinach was being eaten alive too this year. I just pulled it all today and will try again in the fall!

Blessings as your garden continues to grow and harvest!
