We expanded our ground and quadrupled our growing space this year. We're growing tomatoes, cucumbers, butternut squash, summer squash, zucchini, onions, watermelons, cantaloupe, green beans, sweet corn, sweet bell peppers, ichiban eggplant, cabbage, broccoli, snap peas, lettuce, radishes, tomatillos, spinach, potatoes, jalapenos, serrano peppers, carrots, and mammoth sunflowers.
Chris and Tom made these cucumber/ butternut squash trellises from cattle panels found at our local feed store. It was Chris' first welding experience and I'd have to say he did quite well.
Two cabbages harvested and turned into jars and jars of sauerkraut.
We have 15 tomato plants. We'll get scores and scores of the red fleshy fruit this summer. I'm ready for another round of canning diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, marinara (chalk full with our own basil, oregano, thyme), salsa, and pizza sauce.
Every garden needs the weeds to be pulled. The raised bed in the bottom right of the picture held our potato plants. Pictures of that yummy harvest to follow soon.
