Our garden...

I'll try to catch up a little bit on some photos of our garden! We had a very mild, wet, and often cold spring that is now being followed by some normal summer temps! The first photo shows one of our raised beds with corn, sugar snap peas (I'm surprised they are still growing at this time of the year!) and some radishes, thyme, rosemary, and cucumbers.

This is a photo of both the beds closest to our house. The front bed has yellow squash, butternut squash, sunflowers, cantaloupe, and tomatoes (black cherry, German Johnson, Hazelfield...I think there are some others too (I'll have to check Kurt's chart!), jalapeƱo peppers, and basil.

Baby yellow squash!

Some tiny snap peas still hanging on...

Kurt's pride and joy are these red raspberry bushes! Right now we are picking .5 to 1 pint per days!

These are beds back in the corner of our yard. The long one is full of strawberries, now done growing. The smaller bed has lavender, peppermint, cherry tomatoes, and green peppers. I also have heirloom morning glories on the fence!

Baby pepper!

My green bean teepee is growing nicely this year too! These are Missouri pole beans.

Two last beds in the opposite corner of our yard. They get full sun in the morning and shade in the evening. One is still empty! The other had lettuce and spinach and is now growing carrots, peppers, parsley, oregano, sage, and another batch of radishes.

Gardening is so rewarding and I love doing it with the kids too! They were very excited to pick radishes (a nice veggie to grow, as they mature quickly). Kurt and I also did a gardening presentation this spring.  I'll try to get the PowerPoint up here if anyone is interested. Remember, we use organic gardening methods and only use heirloom seeds from Baker Seed Company!
