I have no harvest for this Monday, but let me share with you what we have been doing in our garden so far this year. We've been working to get our spring crops planted in time for them to take advantage of the warm weather, and we've just about got it done.
Here is a picture of our East Plot...
On the far left I have planted five rows of Fortex green beans. To the right of those there are three rows of Willow Leaf Pole Lima Beans, then two rows of Celebrity tomatoes. Then a row with six black beauty eggplants and three sweet banana pepper plants finishing it up. Next to that is the Swiss chard and then the buttercrunch lettuce that is going to seed. When the lettuce is finished, I'll plant something else in that space.
...and now the West Plot.
I finally fertilized and mulched the marconi peppers. Now they just need to show some green on those stalks! To the right of the peppers I planted three rows of La Roma tomatoes. To the left is a row of cucumbers, along with a row of Park's Whopper tomatoes. At the far end of the pepper row you can see bare soil. That is where I have decided to plant my two rows of asparagus, which will be going from left to right in the plot. It will be a very long wait until the first harvest, but it will be worth it. I still have to sow some Detroit Dark Red beets in a row along the far left edge of the cultivated area. Hopefully they will produce this year.
That's all that's new in the garden this week. Within the next two days I'll be planting the asparagus crowns.
I hope everyone is having a great time succumbing to their spring fever!
Have a great vegetable gardening day!
