We’re pretty happy with our spring harvest, this year. The red kale is amazing, asparagus needs to be cut once or twice a day, and swiss chard leaves are huge. We’re saying goodbye to our lettuce, and probably the snap peas, in the greenhouse – too hot. I do have some greens planted outside and they are all doing well, so we’ll get a little harvest from that. The butternut seeds that I accidentally composted in the greenhouse, all germinated, and I had lots of squash plants that I needed to relocate outside of the greenhouse (they take up too much space, and the bees need to pollinate the blossoms). The malabar spinach is coming back with a vengeance. There are hundreds of seedlings coming up.
If you want to start a garden, and it seems like an overwhelming thing, plant things like asparagus in beds that you already have. I have 4 small patches scattered around my beds. Lots of the veggies I grow are not in a “garden” but next to my irises, Mexican sage, etc. It’s a look that I’ve always liked, and makes sense for watering efficiently at our house.
