What's Growing On at The Plots mid-April
I've been spending a lot of time at the plots on the weekends. Due to the weather, some garden is behind compared to last year.....but, it's looking good and I'm happy!!!
View from the front left
Bed #1 with newly planted Broccoli and Garlic in the back
The Broccoli was planted over the weekend and it's looking good!
I put the pots around the plants to protect them from the windy weather we were having
All of the Garlic came up.
It's not as tall as last year. But, that's due to the dry weather. I'm sure it will catch up with some nice rain and warm weather.
I've been working on the Raspberry Trellises
It's hard to see from this pic. I'm adding some T's and wire to the posts to support them. I will finish them up this coming weekend.
Blackberry & Raspberry Bed
I've planted onions around the edges of the blackberries and in every location that I have room. Hopefully we will have a good onion harvest this year.....unlike last year
The Jersey Supreme Asparagus is coming up!
It looks like we will be having some asparagus for dinner this week!
The Purple Passion Asparagus has yet to pop up
I finally made a decision on Tomato Cages.
These are from Burpee. They had great reviews and I got a great deal! I found a coupon code for 25% off and then another coupon code for free shipping! I purchased 18 cages for around $200.
These cages are 5' tall before you put them in the ground and they fold up!
I hope they work as well as the reviews say they do!
There are Snow Peas & Snap Peas planted in two locations. They've all popped up since the rain!
The Strawberry Bed has been cleaned out.....
and they're looking good!
Another view of the plots.
You can see some additional Broccoli plants and onions planted in Bed #5.
I stopped by the plots on Monday and saw this pretty Bluebird. I think I spent 15 minutes taking pictures of him. He's a beauty!
I also took about 100 pictures of the Community Garden. Most of the gardeners have their plots ready to go. That's another post!
