Pulled the rest of the Norland Reds this morning.


Nice harvest. About a 5 gallon bucket full from a 2 x 8í bed.
Iím leaving the Norkohta Russets a while longer.



Beans have all sprouted



San Marzano tomatoes are coming along nicely. I have 7 plants total. Brussels sprouts on the far end.


The upside down tomatoes are producing. What a fun experiment.






Tomatoes and my lone pickle plant are doing great. Canít believe how many pickles Iíve gotten off this one plant. I have to pick again tomorrow. That plant is a monster. Ive pruned it back several times so far. It wants to swallow up the tomato plants and my dahlias.


Planted more radishes in the trough. Spinach is starting to take off.

Cardinal Climbers are going wild and my Hostas came up nicely this year.



The season progresses!

Have to figure out whet Iím going to plant in the empty potato bed. I could do carrots but Iíd have to fence it in to keep my resident rabbits out. It hasnít done any damage so far, but Iím sure it would just love a nice carrot crop to destroy.

All my Asiatic Lillies have peaked. Deer ate the white ones that came out last. Just a  few pink ones left now. Watch closely for Red Lilly Leaf beetles. Theyíll demolish your plants in short order. I sprayed 4 times this past year with malathion to get rid of them. Works very well and doesnít harm the plants.

Prepped the open bed and planted more radishes, spinach and leaf lettuce.

I served an eviction notice on the resident bunny yesterday. Gave it a shower with the garden hose. It bolted out through the fencing. Amazing how it could squeeze through a 2Ēx4Ē opening. Then I proceeded to close off the bottom 2í of the perimeter fencing with chicken wire.

Should block it out and keep my veggies safe from predation.....unless it figures out how to climb.

Not much but finally got some cherry tomatoes to ripen. Still nothing from the big tomatoes.

Throwing these into a tricolored noodle salad with cheddar cheese. Chicken on charcoal is the main dish

Beans came up fast, second and third crops of radishes are all sprouted, tomatoes are still green >:( Spinach is doing well too.

Cayenne peppers are coming on fast. Brussels sprouts are growing big but still no signs of sprouts. Iíve  never grown them before so I really donít know what to expect. Have to do some research i guess.

Sounds like nearly everything is coming in nicely. Iím in the same boat as you with the Brussel sprouts. I planted some for the princessís pet rabbit. Sure do look nice and strong but thereís no signs of any sprouts

Brussels sprouts grow slow..  But will keep growing through most frosts and even snow...If your plants are big and healthy they will start getting sprouts soon..    ;)

Theyíre big and healthy for sure. Had a few holes from the slugs but i put down diatomaceous earth and slug bait and put an end to that. Thereís one thatís making very loose sprouts and from what Iíve read so far, I should pull that one. I have 3 more starting in another bed. Maybe theyíll do something this year as well.

Finished pulling my potatoes this morning.







Plenty for my Bride and I and a few friends.
