Garden Update - June 18th, 2013

The garden isn't looking half bad considering it's been almost non-stop rain in these parts for the last month.  The worst sufferers have been the peppers which don't link they've grown an inch since planting and leaves are somewhat jaundiced and curled.  The second most worrisome are 3 Gold Medal tomato plants planted in the 2X12 foot bed - they have grown very little since planting and are a rather pale green.  Meanwhile their Beam's Pear counterparts have fully grown though not ripe fruit.  Hmmmm...  This week looks relatively free and clear of rain and pretty good temps so hopefully that helps.

What's been harvested or is ready for harvest:
Spinach - harvested and done, it bolted early
Kale - Ready for harvest
Salad Greens - Had a big salad with them tonight, Yum!
Garlic Scapes - I always struggle with what to most effectively do with them
Sugar Snap Peas
Bunching Onions

Photographic Essay:

Carrots are starting to look robust

Sugar Snap Peas

Sugar Snap Peas getting tall!

Lettuce, Kale and anemic Gold Medal tomatoes

Cukes and rather pathetic chiogga beets

Green Beans on left, Sad little peppers on right

Potatoes, Bunching onions, more sad peppers planted with parsley, Lemon tree, Blueberry bush

Up front is the one gold medal tomato I put in a pot, looking much more robust than those in the bed. Wonder why?

Garlic (and Shallots) looking large and disheveled.  Three different varieties (Thai Purple, Music, Morado gigante). Should be ready for harvest in the next 2-3 weeks.

The Beam's pear fruit - just needs enough heat to ripen.
