Monday Garden Update

June 18, 2012 Leave a comment

Not much to report this week. Carrots, Swiss Chard, all the herbs (except the dill) and most of the tomatoes are doing well. The potted Tomatillo is quite happy. Peppers are mostly still alive. Something has dug up two of the tomatoes and some of the Swiss Chard. My bet is on a squirrel, since the Chard was in a wall-mounted pot 4′ off the ground.

Lots of ongoing weeding – this is one of the problems with having a child who loves dandelions. I like the flowers too (they’re bright and sunny and feel like spring), just not in my tomato patch.

Looking forward to the point when the edibles (beyond herbs) are edible – I think I need to look into options for things I can start earlier so that I get real food before July!
