Quite often when I get an real, actual, full day in the garden I have some big building job to do and it feels like I don’t get much done. Last weekend I finally got a full day to do the little stuff. It was amazing! I got netting up for the peas and beans, I put up a pole and strings for the hops I planted. I harvested some spinach, greens, rhubarb and angelica. I planted zucchini, two types of squash and brussel sprouts. I transplanted all of my tomatoes and some of my cucumbers (leaving half behind in case it was too early). I transplanted all my basil, it was SO crowded and now I have about 10 pots of it in a cold frame and tons interplanted between leeks and strawberries and more. They weren’t growing much and I’m hoping the extra space will do the job. Maybe some sun would help too, sigh! I also got netting down over all new transplants this time so that the cats won’t devastate them like with my peppers 😦
So what’s left for my summer garden? The watermelon needs to be transplanted, in a week maybe. Otherwise I’m just watching and maintaining. Now I’m finishing up planting for my fall garden. The parsnips are in, I need to plant the pumpkins, but I lost the seeds 😦 After that it’s the winter garden, which I plan to plant in July. Rutabaga, more leeks, raddichio, winter broccoli, more winterkeeper beets, kale and another round of brussel sprouts.
I’ll do another round of pictures if it ever gets sunny enough for things to grow a bit more! I am planning on harvesting a bunch more spinach to freeze as I have enough greens for salads etc. without it.
