Some Fruits of Our Labors




Our little (huge) garden is finally starting to look like a proper garden. (And check out that handsome gardner!)

Our successes: We have been eating spinach and lettuce out of it for a few weeks now, and the strawberries are doing fantastic.
We should have peas ready to pick next week. (No laughing you warmer-weathered gardeners!)
Our potato plants are HUGE, onions and carrots look great, and most everything is coming along nicely. We're surprised that the artichokes have done so well.

Our losses: We had to replant the beans, and most of the squash, cucumbers, and zucchini died. Some of the blackberry and raspberry starts have failed to thrive as well. The wind did some damage to tomatoes and peppers, but they seem to be recovering.
Our corn is about three inches high and a bit pathetic. Apparently it needs sunshine to grow.
I'm most excited about my thriving tomatillos. Salsa verde here we come!!

Very impressive! I especially love how weed free it looks. I can tell you've spent HOURS taking care of it. Our garden needs some serious TLC.

Garden looks great. We waited a bit to plant because it kept snowing here and all this sporadic weather has done a number on our tomato plants.
