Garden vegetables

the inside is bare because Mika rolled around and killed off a bunch of Kale plants…just a few survived!  The asparagus is huge and should definitely be moved somewhere else.  Planted this year:  asparagus (more plants added), celery, broccoli, kale, spinach, onions,lettuce, and herbs on the side (basil, purple basil, parsely, sage, and rosemary). Also planted 2 tomato plants in pots, the cherry tomatoes are producing, the other tomatoes are rotten on the bottom again! (A lady at the farmers market tells me this is d/t a calcium deficiency..cure: save old egg shells, blend them up and add them to the bottom of the pot before potting. Will try next year!)

The  bounty from today. I am surprised at how much lettuce my garden has produced this year. It seems to just keep coming..not complaining! Everyday there are a few cherry tomatoes that are ready and they taste so good! The broccoli has done very well too. Definitely miss our peppers but plan to get some from the Furleigh farm soon.

Plan to have a big garden next year at the nursery!

Plans to plant next year:

Lettuce, kale, spinach, broccoli, cabbage?, carrots, onions, tomatoes (cherry for sure), peppers (hot, sweet, and bell), zucchini/summer squash, cucumbers, and herbs (basil, sage, rosemary, parsley, cilantro?)   strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries
