The strawberries are all tucked into their well mulched home at the East end of the 24 foot garden. The rest of that garden is a blend of lettuces, spinach, cabbages, broccoli raab, and peppers.
The peppers are still making peppers like crazy, which makes me happy. I’m eating them as fast as I can!
The cabbage is gorgeous, but shows no signs of making a head. I have this problem every year.
The 8 foot garden, in which I planted potatoes in August, then overplanted with other things when the potatoes showed no signs of coming up, has now been overtaken by the late sprouting potato plants.
The broccoli in this garden looks good, although no crowns have sprouted. The pac choi also looks good and can be harvested at any time for stir frying. The potatoes are flowering, which is a good sign, although because of the shortened growing time (since they sat dormant for over a month), I’m not expecting a large harvest. Potatoes take about 100 days, so I’m thinking I’ll get a crop of smallish new potatoes around Thanksgiving.
The 8 foot bed where the Nandina used to be, currently is empty, except for a few scraggly bean plants and some weeds.
The Celebrity Tomato in the Earthbox, has produced exactly one small tomato thus far. There is one more medium sized tomato that will make it, and there are several tiny tomatoes that I’m going to try to coax through the next few weeks, by making a greenhouse over the Earthbox with clear plastic.
The two side beds are filled with onions and garlic, and will stay that way until harvest in March or April.
The next thing I’ll be planting will be additional blackberry bushes, in the next few weeks, and perhaps more lettuce and spinach.
