Well, first off, I finally got around to starting to gravel in the paths between the beds. I accidently made them too narrow to mow when I was setting things up and they’ve been a pain to manage, so when Home Depot put their white marble chips gravel on sale over memorial weekend I took advantage and bought enough to do about half the paths. I’d have bought more but I didn’t have the money at the time. It looks so nice though that the higher price will be worth it, and it’s less than $1/bag difference between the marble and the next one down anyway when it’s all at full price.
Once all the paths are done I’ll build a little wall all the way around the garden and fill that in with gravel too, ought to look awesome once its done. Though I doubt I’ll get THAT part done this summer. We’ll see. I have other projects too…..
Thanks to the hot spring the lettuce is huge
Strawberries are almost ripe
Sugar Baby watermelons
I also planted a variety of watermelon called Early Moon, but didn’t get pictures.
Long Pie Pumpkins
Zucchini (and a bumper crop of clover, ooops)
Purple Cherokee tomatoes
Jalapenos (yes, those are baby peppers already)
Black Plum tomatoes, and yup, they’re producing already too
In addition I also have Sugar Snap peas (though whether I’ll actually get any…..), Cucumbers (the Mini Whites again), two kinds of radishes (which I’ve already picked), cantalope, Charentis melons again, habaneros, Hungarian Hot Wax peppers, carrots (7 kinds), sunflowers, okra…….
