It is Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions! Come share your harvest and see what other gardeners are growing!
Last night some areas were expected to get a late frost, IN MAY! Crazy! So I had to cover everything, and since my garden has grown in size this year, it was a LOT to cover. I don't want to have to do that again! It was a pain. But my thermometer says that it got to 39 in my back yard, so I hope they were all safe.
|My herbs were getting a bit out of control already. I cut some oregano, thyme and rosemary. Those ought to refill my herb containers, some were getting low or gone!|
|Spinach and lettuce again. We are still enjoying the salads and even the occasional spinach omelet!|
Around the garden, most things have been planted.
This is my newer section. It is not as neat looking as the other side of the garden. We couldn't figure out what to do since it would not till up at all! So we ended up just putting a layer of compost over top and planting directly in it. It is probably going to get seriously weedy. But I have lots of squash, melons and corn planted over here and will be adding some beans around the corn. It will be quite the tangled mess here I am sure.
This is the other end where the corn is. And some sunflowers on the very end.
The challenge here will be how to keep the squirrels from getting the corn before us.
Hope you are having a great harvest week. Happy Harvesting!
