Field of beans. They are starting to flower.
Beans from another view.
First phase of the sweet corn is about 4 feet high.
Swiss Chard. Beautiful Swiss Chard. I didn't realize I got a mixture of different colors of swiss chard and so the colors suprised me. I sauteed it with shallots and garlic (from the garden as well)-- yum!!!
Black seeded simson lettuce. Perfect for eating! I've been giving it away by the bagful. I now need to learn how to stagger the planting so that I get staggered picking.
Dill, basil and cilantro-- my 3 favorite herbs.
The pumpkins are coming up!!!
This is the field of pumpkins and watermelons.
I'm really enjoying the whole process of gardening. I even find that I get a sense of accomplishment after I've weeded a section of garden and given my plants another round to grow. The garden is shaping up fairly well and we now have a watering system in place so I'm diligently watering the peppers and such. Peppers need about an inch of water a day but I haven't really figured out how large the inch needs to be. Do you just assume 1 inch for the area 2-3 inches around the plant or is the height taken into consideration? I will need to research.
