Here’s our Garden – it’s been nice and hot the last few days which is sorely needed. On the left going from closest to farthest:
cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Radish, Lettuce, Peas, more Peas, broccoli Spinach, Chard, Beets, Turnip, more Lettuce.
On the right going from closest to farthest:
Onions, Carrots, Green Beans, Potatoes
The cool weather crops are doing great. Lettuce and Spinach has been fantastic and the Radishes are huge and delicious.
Here’s the Berry Beds and the Greenhouse – can you see the new gravel pathway we are putting in? We’re very happy with it and hoping in the next few days to work on the next portion. The pathway will run all the way down to the Barn. It will make it a lot easier and cleaner next year during mud season.
From the left are the onion mentioned above, to the right of them are the Strawberries. We have three separate beds for them. That white cloth is Remay and it is protecting the corn I have growing there. It’s very small and yet it has cobs. This is the corn that I got from the fellow in Oregon and it’s one of our experiments this year. It is very difficult to grow corn here outside and yet we are trying. The wet cool Spring has not helped the corn, we will see how it turns out.
On the right is the Garlic – over 400 plants as we love Garlic. It’s often served roasted nightly here right alongside the vegetables of the night. To the right of the Garlic are 2 Highbush Cranberry bushes. They have lots of flowers on them right now, so we are hoping for many Cranberries this Fall.
On the far right are the Raspberries. Right now we have three rows, but I do keep expanding it by 1 row a year it seems. You can never have too many Raspberries, can you?
On talking with the neighbours a couple of days ago, we learned they had a lot of Rhubarb they weren’t going to use. So I went over today and harvested it and tonight we worked on Rhubarb Wine again.
We got a total weight of 40 pounds of Rhubarb today. I diced some into 2 cup measures and put them in Ziplocks. We’ll use them for Rhubarb/Saskatoon pie or muffins.
The Saskatoon Berry bushes are looking quite healthy with lots of berries. I am hoping for a fantastic Berry year because of all the rain this Spring. We are wanting some Saskatoon Jelly!
