Veggie Garden Pics - Part Two


Continuing on from the previous post, more garden pics!

Tucked in between Swiss chard and spinach....
I have a half row of radishes and one and a half rows mixed lettuc...





Spinach...and lots of it! It is now starting to bolt as you can see the beginnings of the flower stalk in the picture.....but the spinach is still tasty!

Yesterday, I took out every second plant in two of the rows....I am trying to get in there to pull out all the chickweed.

The spinach, of course, went to the laying hens and the pigs. At the time, the pigs were out on pasture and wouldn't come when I called them.

So, I just threw all the spinach plants into their house ha!

They got a nice surprise when they got home!!





Rows of mixed lettuce....I just threw all my lettuce seed packets together and mixed them up.






The cabbages....they are getting strong and sturdy leaves now. They are just beginning to form heads.

We grow BIG cabbages up here....the record so far is 15 lbs!







Broccoli and Cauliflower plants.....







Broccoli is starting to form heads....we are just a few days away from picking our first head.







Green Bush Beans....the row cover is there in case we are expecting overnight temperature dips...any forecast for 5 C or below...they get covered up.

The zuccinnis do as well. The rest fends for itself!

I LOVE all your garden pics and am constantly inspired by the "fruits" of your labour. I feel healthier just looking at all that stuff. Keep the pics coming!
