It’s been a big year here on the Micro-Farm, with an addition to the family leaving little time for tending the land. Waits is approaching 5 months now, and my poor yard . . . my poor yard is approaching catastrophe! But that’s okay. I have a plan, a long-term vision to work off of through summer and fall. If all goes well I’ll be set up to take off running next spring!
And for now, the babe is a bit bigger and I’m able to get outside a bit more – accompanied by my munchkin of course!
Despite my [reluctant] neglect, my garden – beautiful beast that it is – is thriving! You may remember what it looked like freshly planted, back in May. It’s come a long way! Here’s the right-side bed :
The lower left quadrant used to house the pac choi, but I tore that out when it bolted, and I’ve replaced it with six nice tomato starts from the Farmer’s Market.
My snow peas, which I feared I’d gotten into the ground too late, have made it:
Behind all that, the sunflowers have just shot up (we *finally* got some heat around here) and are growing like crazy now. Yay! I planted the same monster variety as last year.
And last but not least, though I can’t eat them this year because Waits reacts, I still think the strawberries are soooo adorable.
So tell me tell me, how are your gardens growing? Link to pics if you’ve got ‘em, we all want to see!
