Frolic Through the Garden Friday

Here's what's happening in my garden.

Strawberries are ripening.

 Peas and onions are growing just as good as the weeds behind them.

This is my main garden, my husband build me raised beds this year. So far I find it away easier to plant, weed, and water my garden. In the first bed I have planted tomatillos, butternut squash, carrots, and pie pumpkins. The bed behind that is zucchini, radishes, carrots, and turnip. Next bed over is bush beans, sweet corn, pop corn and sunflowers down the middle. Behind that one is pickling cucumbers, slicing cucumbers, two cabbage plants, and bush beans at the end. 
The last row of beds I have broccoli, kraut cabbage, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. The bed behind this is yellow potatoes.  In the back next to my greenhouse is my tomato bed. I covered them to keep the heat in and the rain out.

These are my potato experiments. I'm trying to find the best way for me to grow potatoes. In pots and in a garden bed. Both I planted with about 3 inches of soil on top of the seed potatoes then add more soil as they grew.
This is before I added more soil.
After I added more soil.

These are my peppers and basil in my greenhouse.

I always grow a few tomatoes in my greenhouse just in case something happens to the ones I planted outside.

I can't wait eat and make raspberry jelly.

I have had this plum tree for three years and these are the first fruit it has produced. I'm so excited.

  1. I planning on creating a self watering strawberry bed along the side of my floating garden. Then I plan to plant strawberries. It may be too late to get the berry plants, but I'm still going to create the bed to have it ready for next year. - Margy

    1. That sounds like a great idea, because I have trouble watering my strawberries.

  2. Those strawberries look mouth-watering! Your garden is doing great! Enjoy your bounty. Thanks for stopping by The Maple Hill Hop this week!
