After last week’s garden post I pulled out the tiller and got to work battling the weeds and maple trees that had been popping up in my garden.
While I still need to do some weeding the garden is looking better.
The broccoli and cabbage have grown even more during this past week.
It is supposed to rain this afternoon and, after it does, I am going to cover the broccoli and cabbage with some netting that I purchased to help keep the cabbage moths at bay.
I know they will be coming around soon and I want to avoid having them wreak havoc on my plants this year.
Most of my broccoli plants have heads forming. I guess it won’t be too much longer until we get our first harvest.
One of the tomato plants I purchased was bigger than the others. I had to use some strips of old pantyhose to tie it (loosely) to the fence because it was getting top-heavy.
Check out those tomatoes!
I added twine to the tomato cage I planted sugar snap peas around but I ran out. I am going to probably have to use some yarn today to finish it off because the peas are really starting to grow and vine.
I always enjoy watching the zucchini plants grow. They tend to be one of the easiest and most productive plants in our garden.
I am still loving our cinder block planters filled with marigolds and onions. The splash of color is so cheery.
I really wasn’t expecting to have any strawberries this year but guess I was wrong. 🙂
The green beans and corn are growing steadily. I am going to try to plant another row of corn in the next few days.
With the hot, dry weather we have been having I should have been out every day watering our greens. Since I haven’t, the spinach looks like it will have to be replanted.
Overall, I think our garden is doing very well. How is your garden growing?
