June Week 4 Garden Update
Strawberries: We would have had a small harvest if the squirrels hadn't got to it first. Plans to protect our strawberries are under way, (wire boarder fence with bird netting on top?). We got like 80% of ours from a neighbor's grandson. I believe it is June bearing, the ones we purchased are everbearing and just starting to flower and start strawberries now, so hopefully we can still save tihat crop. The strawberries we got from our neighbor were diseased but after transplanting them into better soil, they were in clay soil before, they have cleared up on their own, yea! I weeded and moved the runners to where I want it.
Raspberries: Just starting to have a handfull a day harvest
|Corn, Popcorn, kale, basil, asparagus, and cilantro|
I had to replant our beans and soybeans, because they didn't come up the first time, but second time is the charm! We caged in the squares with beans and peas, and broccoli to protect against bunnies. We've lost some in the past that way. Our peas are starting to come up, broccoli and asparagus is doing well, turnip is starting to come up and needs to be thinned, brussel sprouts starting? too soon to say, it could be a weed, corn and popcorn is doing well, kale, and our purple basil and cilantro came up from seed, and cucumbers seem to be doing well too.
|tomatoes, Swiss chard, lettuce|
|our potatoes are growing and just hilled|
|our lettuce in containers is doing great!|
