Two Months In

June 8, 2009

Did I already say this? I think I’m a broken record – we have way too much lettuce. We can’t possibly eat it all.  We really need to look into giving away some to the Squash Hunger program.  Oh well, we’ll pay attention to how long it lasts this year and know how much to plant for next year.

We’re about two months into our garden now (two months ago today we “rented” our plot!) and it is bursting with life.  I spent a couple of hours Sunday afternoon thinning one of the lettuce beds.  That’s right, I actually pulled out whole plants, and ended up with a ton of lettuce to eat this week and barely a dent in the garden!

A few updated pics on other things in the garden…

The green beans we planted last week have sprouted!

K said it would be fast, and he was right!  The corn has sprouted too!

The strawberries are flowering all over the place and we have our first strawberry growing!

The brussels sprouts keep getting bigger.

And we keep trying to convince the sugarsnap peas to climb the stakes we put into the ground.  We finally strung twine in between in hopes they’ll start using it like a trellis.

And finally, now that the golden chard has gotten a little bit bigger, we are starting to see how it got it’s name! Look at the beautiful yellow stalks.  I love it!

That’s it for now.  Anyone want some lettuce?  It’s fresh and delicious, I swear!

    Your garden looks wonderful!

    When I had one it was too hot and dry and by July I just let the bugs and the drought have it cause it was too hard to keep fighting.
