June Update

Been busy with other things and haven't updated in a while. But everything is going well with the garden. Still having regular salads and keeping an eye out for pests. Something is still chewing on my cauliflower and now a few broccoli leaves. I haven't caught them in the act yet and have been spraying BT.

Here's a broccoli head with a quarter for scale.

Those are pickling cucumber transplants on the left, which seem to be doing okay despite the shade it gets from the broccoli. On the right are General Lee cucumbers that I direct sowed after the transplants died. They seem to be doing fine also so far.

Tomatos, pole beans, swiss chard, cayenne peppers, basil, parsley, cilantro and spinach.

Tomatoes, cauliflower and onions.

Tomatoes and lettuce.

The peas are starting to flower.

I forgot to get a shot of the SWC's, but they are growing well, too. So, overall, no complaints and things are progressing nicely.


  1. Ditto on the looks. Your Broccoli is way ahead of mine.


  2. Wow. That spinach looks awesome. How do you get it so big? Seems that mother nature is smiling upon your garden!!!

  3. The spinach is Giant Noble Spinach, an heirloom variety I got from Pinetree Seeds. It does seem to get big!
