I completely missed the fact that we don't have a gardening thread yet this year!
Well, here's a quick tour of my community garden plot, which I was lucky enough to double this year.
It's 20 feet wide, and 26 feet long.
The right side of my plot - from the near left to the near right: Strawberries and asparagus (planted this year), Mini Butternut Squash, scarlet runner beans, tri color bush beans, tomatoes (soooo many tomatoes, each in their own little mini DIY greenhouse), the herb bed (whcih you definitely can't see behind the tomatoes), kid garden with peas and more runner beans, on the far right. Variegated zucchinis, a mixed scatter planted bed of turnips, carrots, beets, swiss chard, and then gold and green zucchinis, and a rhubarb.
The left side, from front left: (you can't really see, but I have more strawberries, garlic and lettuce interplanted, then sets of onions and lettuce interplanted, then the hoop frame) In no particular order, a mess of weed, rows of carrots, daikon radish, lettuce, kale (which has not come up...), spinach, turnips, broccoli raab, kholrabi, cabbage. At the front, which you can't really see I've got Acorn Squash and Pattison Panache (UFO summer squash). Then the peppers, an empty space, mixed leftover onions and leeks at the far right (which I completely mixed up when planting them in, lol), then the tomatoes (which are one big long row across most of the plot), a watermelon (I thought I'd give a shot, since it's supposed to be a hot long summer), onions and chard, onions and lettuce, different onions and lettuce. The middle row has a little patch of marigolds and sunflowers, then peas, garlic which I just interplanted with beets, and a few different varieties of cucumber which I've seeded and transplanted with NO luck at least 4 times now.
Better pictures of some of the individual beds:
Herbs, with the yummy purple sage front and center
Lettuces and onions interplanted - The onions I started from seed are currently kicking the pants off of the ones I started from sets. They're much more vigorous, seem healthier, and despite being planted later and woefully mistreated they ALL took after transplanting. I'm very interested to see if the harvest is better from the sets or starts.
A view from the front of the peppers, with the tomatoes in the background. I won't be heartbroken if I get no peppers, these are very much an experiment as Ive had absolutely no luck with peppers no matter where I get them from, how I plant them, and anything else I've tried. *shrugs*
Runner beans on the kid garden lattice, they've been loving our alternately wet and sunny weather.
At the back you can see my TONS of garlic that's doing super well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it'll work nicely with the beets I seeded in this past week - my plan is that by the time the beets need the room the garlic will be ready to pull. We shall see. At the front is the swiss chard (which had a rough go with transplanting, I abused those poor little suckers, but now that they've taken they've sprung up a good 2 inches in 3 days!), then a more different view of the lettuce and onions. I will say that everywhere I planted with lettuce and onions both plants are pretty happy - they seem to get along quite well.
And that's all the fun stuff currently going on at my garden. Anyone else up for giving a tour? I'd love to see how well things are growing for you guys.
