June Garden Update

We took pretty much everything out of the raised bed and put in new seedlings and this is the result. It’s looking promising so far and I’m excited. We have pumpkins, tomatoes, squash and lettuce growing in the bed. Last year’s cucumber surprisingly came back in one of the planters and our black pearl tomato is already flowering. I would love to plant more out there, we certainly have room for more beds, but Jeff hasn’t gotten the chance to build any more and so our garden remains small this year. But, this is California and the growing season is quite long so there is still time…

  1. Just beautiful and wonderful that you are taking the time to grown some of your own food. Good for you, both of you.

  2. Your garden is beautiful! This is the first year that we’ve had any space to grow anything at all, and although it, too, is small, I’m super excited about it. So far I have a row of three tomato plants and a row of three basil plants. I’m going to lay down more compost, which I think will give me a little more space. Maybe two or three more rows, depending on how close I can put whatever goes in next. I can’t wait to see how your garden grows!

    • tomatoes are so much fun to grow! Last year we had trouble with powdery mildew but I’m hoping this year we do okay! It’s neat having things in a raised bed versus containers. Are you making your own compost? Glad to have you reading Tracy! šŸ™‚
