Garden Is....IN! For the most part......
Last week, with the assistance of a friend, the garden went in. Various types of tomato, including heirlooms, peas, limas, artichokes (first try), various squash, pumpkins, broccoli (if someone will stop nibbling on it), moon and stars melon, potatoes (including Yukon gold and Adarondack blue) and more.
The herb garden (not pictured) is a work in progress, and I will probably be adding to it for the next few years.
A few pictures of the garden in progress. Watch in the next day or so for more on the straw bales. Part of the garden is in them, as an experiment.
It doesn't look like much now, but hopefully it won't take long. The horseradish is huge, however, and the 4th of July tomato plants have little fruits already.
