Putting the Garden to Bed

Well, it was a good growing season, but it's beginning to wind down. Nights are cooler and the rainy weather has returned. I've chopped up the last of the beans and corn, and covered most of the plot up with burlap (free from the Magonlia Nursery). Most fall crop of peas has been a success. This is the first time I have ever been able to grow fall edibles. So, I get to harvest a modest crop of peas. Also, my cyclamen cilicium is blooming.

As High as an Elephant's Eye

Yup, the corn is coming along. And, I have two groups of pole beans planted. The first crop has sent out vines.

End of May

Everything is growing like crazy. It's almost time to begin harvesting the peas. Also, I planted the first crop of corn (under the remay).

First Vegetables

So, I'm growing two varieties of spinach. I applied fish fertilizer for a couple of weeks, but it looks like the warmer weather is what they needed to really take off.

Spring Has Arrived

Ok, Spring is definitely here. April has just started and the temperatures are starting to hit the low 70's. All of my Spring bulbs have bloomed, and the hellebore have been blooming for the past couple of months. I have planted telephone-pole shelling peas, and planted some more spinach. Also, I plan on putting in Cipollini onions within the next week. Now that the fuchsia is gone, I have a lot more room for veggies this summer. I will be growing corn and beans.

Early Color

We are still in winter but the Scilla Tubergeniana and Hellebore are blooming, and the tulips are on the way.

A New Year

So, it is January 1st and pretty cold outside. The Interbay P-Patch had their annual New Year's gathering. There was plenty of food to eat. Also, I was able to dig up the fuchsia (will certainly feel it tomorrow) and with Donna's help to transplant it on the south side of the p-patch. This will free about nearly a quarter of my plot for other plants.
