Garden Update!

It's time for a garden update. I love posting pictures throughout the season. It is wonderful to see the many phases of growth that occurs each year.

In the picture above, you can see the two large beds that I have crafted underneath the trees. One of them has very types of lettuce and other assorted greens. The furthest bed is filled with garlic.

In the picture below you can see the plum tree that I planted a few years back. I was finally able to acquire a mate for the golden yellow plum tree. It is a Vampire plum tree and it will self pollinate and also pollinate the golden yellow tree. 

You can't tell very well by the picture below, but behind the two raised beds, I have a couple rows with pumpkin and zucchini growing. 

The raised bed on the left took a beating this year. The dog has been in that bed a lot and I managed to lose a little over half of the lettuce growing in the front. I have peas growing along the fence in the back, in various stages of growth to extend the harvest season.

I have some high bush blueberry bushes and Haskap bushes growing in the background of the photo below, I have covered the bed they reside in with red mulch. I have a pretty great crop of Rhubarb growing this year. It is the first year that I have been able to harvest it. 

I'll post another update in a couple weeks!
