Garden snapshot, June 2013

I had time to take some pictures when I was doing a few things in my garden yesterday. It’s been growing like crazy with all the rain while we were gone!

The zucchini didn’t get devoured by slugs after all, although its not growing as fast as last year.

20130612-143112.jpg All the tomato plants are looking great, even the ones that had gotten droopy in the containers. Some of them have a few blossoms.

20130612-133449.jpg I can grow peas! These snow peas are ready for picking.

20130612-133521.jpg The carrots are coming right along.

20130612-133553.jpg The green onions are ready for cutting.

20130612-133627.jpg The kale has gotten really big and that’s one Brussels sprout on the left. This is the first year I’ve grown either of those.

20130612-133731.jpg Attack of the monster oregano! This thing is two feet tall. Anyone have a good recipe that uses tons of oregano?

20130612-133933.jpg Some of the squash are starting to climb the trellis. They have some blossoms, too.

20130612-134050.jpg This is the first time I’ve grown pumpkins.

20130612-134131.jpg I was surprised to see volunteer potato plants in the bed at the bottom of the yard. I didn’t plant anything else there yet, so they can stay.

20130612-134301.jpg One of the onions I planted last summer decided to sprout, and now it has a really cool flower.

20130612-134341.jpg I hilled up one barrel of potatoes.

20130612-134446.jpg The two Asian pears are ping pong ball sized now.

20130612-134522.jpg So are the peaches, and they’ve self-thinned (which is a good thing).

20130612-134559.jpg The blueberry bush is covered with berries. This one seems to have gotten a little ahead of itself.

20130612-134701.jpg There are lots of blackberries, too.

20130612-134728.jpg Unfortunately, my nightmares have come to fruition (just like my plants, so punny…) and several of the beds have been overtaken by grass and weeds. Some of them are a foot tall! O_O Looks like lots of weeding will be waiting for me when we get back…
