How is your vegetable garden doing so far this year? We have greatly expanded ours and so far, so good!
We added four more raised beds — two on top of the hill and two terraced on the side.
We’ve planted a bunch of tomato plants — I don’t even remember how many, we accidentally planted too many. There are some hybrids and heirlooms in the mix so we’ll see how they do.
We also have a bunch of peppers. As well as some lima beans, zucchini, pumpkins, and cucumbers.
On the side of the hill I have planted some sunflowers and swiss chard.
BUT SOMEONE ATE MY CHARD!
Each plant seems to be growing at different rates so I put some animal repellent on the remaining chard which hopefully will keep the deer at bay. We’ll see. It’s always a little hit or miss.
My herb garden is going crazy though. The lavender just keeps on going. It is huge now and really attracts those pollinators!
Aside from a few little cherry tomatoes, the garden hasn’t really started producing yet — just looks like it’s on the verge. I can’t wait until the summer’s bounty begins!
