What's Growing: May 22 2009
Yesterday was a lazy day with an overcast sky so I finally took time to photograph what's growing in our garden. Broccoli Raab, Lettuce, Spinach and herbs were all harvested this week
Broccoli, Peas, Beans, Squash, Strawberries, Tomatos and Carrots are growing strong
We supplemented our peppers grown from seed with 3 sweet yellow and 3 sweet chili peppers seedlings from Oakland Nursery. We also planted 1 cherry and 1 beefsteak tomato seedling from oakland because we just might not have enough. laugh
I couldn't resist buying some lavender from Oakland too. I planted them under where our clothesline hangs and am hoping that we might get some aromatic laundry later in the summer.
Swiss chard seeds were planted overtop where the parsnip seeds never grew.
We covered strawberries and spinach with bird netting. Birds have also been pecking away at our peas, so no more bird seed in the back yard. Maybe I'll move a feeder out front because we still love to see them.
I also added a fence to the second square plot because the hounds kept walking through the delicate carrots and peppers.
We have been watering a lot as there has been not much rain in central Ohio lately. Storms are forecasted for the next few days and I expect a giant growth spurt after that.
Now the photo evidence:
