Garden Update May 12th

tomato plants



onions and strawberries


setting up some of the raise beds



berry bushes


potato and beans in the ground

I love the middle of May, slowly but surely the garden takes form and everything turns green. The last week has been pretty busy, as I wanted to get certain things done before the babies are coming. I have started to work on the raised beds and set up the first two, so that I was able to plant red & white cabbage and red & white Kohlrabi, with those in the ground, I can relax for a few days before the cucumber plants need to go in. I have also planted 3 rows of beans and a 4th one is on it's way. The peas are coming a long nicely and I can see the first carrots tops barely peeking out. I have harvested lettuce, onions and herbs already from the garden, to have a salad with my dinner most of last week. I also harvested the first rhubarb on the weekend and made a lovely cake. 
I also planted some flowers as I have some root vole in the garden, that ate a lot of my flowers, I hope the combination of garlic and mint will keep them away now as I am so tired of the hundreds of holes that are in my garden, but fingers crossed, no new holes have appeared for 5 days now... 

What is going on in your garden?

  1. I think you've got huge amounts done and it looks fantastic - and hopefully can look after itself for a bit while you enjoy the babies!
