It was not raining tonight (a departure from our usual weather this month) so I headed out to pull a few weeds and see how the veggies were surviving. Most things don’t seem to be enjoying the wet weather, but I think there has been a lot of progress since I last wrote about the garden.
The cilantro plants have put out real leaves since I last photographed them. I can’t wait for them to grow bigger so I can make fresh salsa.
The mint is loving the wet weather and both plants are taking off. Once we get a clear night I’ll be able to sit on the deck with a mint lemonade.
The south veggie bed is actually starting to resemble a vegetable garden instead of a bunch of scraggly weeds. Beans and peas in the north bed are still doing OK – none have died yet. Asparagus crowns are starting to leaf out.
Our zucchini plants aren’t big, but there are much bigger than last year. I have no idea if they will produce fruit but right now things look promising.
With all the sucess there are failures – our basil looks limp and sad; the kale is refusing to grow and the brocoli hasn’t done a thing. Those artichokes haven’t died but haven’t really grown either. I haven’t given up hope of anything happening (it is only June) but some of the veggies need to step it up!
