We had some really nice weather over the past week or so. Thursday was the beginning of a rainy period for us. The rain is needed and welcomed. The cooler temperatures are not.
I dodged the rain to take some updated pictures of the garden:
|The first little tomatoes|
|Garlic scapes ready for harvesting|
|Pole beans climbing the trellis|
|The first pea pod|
|Dark Red Norland Potatoes|
|Peppers enjoying the shower|
While it rained, I took some time to try to plan out some succession planting for the garden. Some of the spring lettuce will be finished soon and I have several transplants ready to take their place. I have also started some lettuce seeds in pots that can be moved into the shade as summer heats up. I hope that I can keep fresh lettuce growing all summer.
I have also been reviewing the posts from last year to give me an idea of when crops were harvested so I can plan to put something else in its place.
I expect the garden to pop in growth after this rainy period.
