This Years Garden

2016-first-harvestAgain this year I planted a vegetable garden. Somehow I did not get around planting my own seeds so my plants came from Orchard Supply.

I got 6 tomato, 2 cucumber, 3 bell peppers, 2 yellow crook neck squash, 2 sweet basil, a spearment, and 6 melons.
All are doing well but to be honest not as good as when I planted my own seeds.

My first harvest was the artichokes, squash, strawberries and 1 tomato.

The strawberry plants are now 3 years old and produce a lot of fruit in a bed that is 3 feet by 6 feet. The first harvest and picture was taken May 17th. The strawberry plants are still producing strawberries today.

The 3 Artichoke plants are also 3 years old and put out far more artichokes than we can eat. They are beautiful plants and since we can not eat that many artichokes I let them flower. They are so pretty when they all open at the same time.
