Vegetable Garden Progress

Monday, June 27, 2016

So it's been a while since I gave you an update on my veggie garden.  I am so proud of myself and how far it's come.  I've also learned a few things along the way...

My lettuce and onions are kickin butt and I've been getting a TON of lettuce from both raised garden beds in the past few weeks.  Nothing tastes better than lettuce FRESHLY PICKED from your OWN garden!

 I am so impressed with my cukes too! They are coming up more and more each day.  And in case you are wondering about what types of lettuce I have - Kale, Spinach, Romaine, and Buttercrunch are the main ones!

I did kind of plant everything in a weird arrangement and kind of close together but that's okay because I am still making it work but atleast I know for next time.  I also did some interplanting of some pest control herbs like Rosemary, Mint, Oregano, and Sage.

I also have a really long raised garden bed with more lettuce and 2 Zucchini plants. I actually had more Zucchini because when I planted everything I assumed that nothing would survive and that I suck at gardening. And boy I  was wrong. Everything started coming up and I realized that it was way too crowded so next year I will only plant ONE Zucchini plant and I will make sure there's plenty of room.  I can't wait till the fruits start coming out though!

I have a tomato plant that is thriving and my banana pepper plant isn't doing the best (It's in the corner) but we will see how that goes. 
In front of the tomato plant are yukon potatoes which should be ready soon.  

And I am super excited about my Butternut Squash. They are vining now and I seriously am ecstatic as it's one of my favorite foods!

I have strawberries coming up which I'm excited about. I keep those in containers at the other side of the yard that gets more sun.

Blueberries and raspberries!! I love them and they are coming up soooo fast!

I also have some yukon gold potatoes in a pot and they seem to be doing great!

Here's what the side of the house with the containers looks like.  I love my pepper plants so far they are doing really well!
