Garden Update: We have Peas

 Well our garden is starting to take off now.

We have had a few days of sun and one 80 degree day so that is helping the garden grow. Our summers here usually don’t start until the 5th of July. But this year we have been having a lot more rain than usual which is great for the cool loving plants and our water bill. But not so good for our sun-loving plants like the zucchini, peppers and tomatoes.

I was able to uncover all of the plants except for the peppers. I learned last year they really need to be kept warm or they don’t do well at all. So our weather just hasn’t been consistent enough to uncover them. That is what is under the milk jugs in the pictures in case you wanted to know.

We have been harvesting some sugar snap peas this past week along with 2 to 3 raspberries and strawberries each day. I planted some more seeds with the kids this  past week in the garden. I like to plant a few lettuce, radishes and carrots a few weeks apart so they are not all ready to harvest at the same time. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

We also harvested some of our mint for mint water. It is a nice drink to have when it is hot outside. We drink it without sweetener but some people like to add a little sugar to it. I am hoping to post about it next month.

Here is how the garden looks now.

I am hoping our garden continues to thrive. Our blueberry plants (forgot to take a picture) have a few blueberries on them but the plants continue to struggle. I am not sure what I need to do to help them out. I think they may need to be moved where there is more sun.

So that is what is growing at our house.

Do you have any vegetables or fruits you are growing? Or have you found some good deals lately at a farm stand?

  1. Your garden really looks nice. Great job. Just a comment, I have a cat that looks identical to yours. Mine is a boy, what is yours?

  2. You have a beautiful garden Shell! My daughter started a bean plant in her kindergarten class and brought it home to plant somewhere. It died before we could get it planted because a squirrel knocked over the temporary pot we had it in and we didn’t notice it for a few days.
