Family of 4 Garden Tour
I thought I’d give you a tour of our Family of 4 garden, since it can be hard to patchwork all my pictures and posts together into a clear picture of what’s been going on.
Here’s the overview of the garden. It is looking pretty well full. We took the row cover hoops out, again. Hopefully they stay out this time!
The beets and carrots are growing well.
We planted the tomatoes today! We are using this tomato “teepee” rather than cages. It is just two cattle fence panels clipped together at the top. It will be interesting to see how it works. It did require a bit of adjustment to the planting plan, so the herbs will be planted in the open space between the tomatoes and Brussels sprouts rather than in amongst the tomatoes. (The cabbage you see in the picture were planted during a demonstration…I haven’t had the heart to yank them out yet.)
The tomato varieties planted were ‘First Light’ and ‘Fabulous’. They are both relatively new varieties.
The salad greens, lettuces, and radishes are looking delicious! Next week we may decide to pull up some of the salad greens to plant peppers. Or we may just plant the peppers in between the rows for the time being!
