Summer Vegetable Garden
As we head into Summer, the garden has been mostly turned over to summer vegetables. The carrots, shallots and sugar snap peas from the Spring plantings are thriving. However, the rest has been harvested to make room for Summer-loving veggies. So here's a peak at what's now growing in my garden. The photo was taken May 30. Within the past 5 days, the sugar snap peas have already gotten taller and some have been harvested. The shallots are also nearing their end. You'll notice that I planted the carrots and shallots on the ends of the bed knowing that they would take longer to grow than their other Spring crops. This left space in the center to plant the summer veggies. It's all in the planning! You'll also see from the photo how I'm making use of the cucumber trellis to maximize space.
