Last weekend was another beautiful one in Seattle, so I headed out to spend some time in the garden. I took the pictures before I did much work so it already looks quite different. I’ll update again next week with everything we have added to the garden. You can see how the garden started here.
Our cucumbers were a total bust and have already died and been pulled. We’ve never had much luck with cucumbers. I just don’t know what the secret is to making them grow.
The broccoli has taken off like crazy and I get excited every time I see those little florets (sorry for the poorly focused picture). One of the things I am discovering about gardening is that I don’t really know anything! Like I have no idea where the vegetables are going to grow from my plants. The broccoli was a total surprise and I keep starting at the brussel sprouts and wondering what part is actually going to be a brussel sprout.
These are the peas I started from seed and they are just starting to reach my pea trellis. I see lots of other gardeners are already harvesting peas, so I hope I wasn’t too late in planting them.
My garden chores for this coming weekend include thinning my zucchini and squash seeds and planting the rest of my tomato plants. Come back next week for another update.
How is your garden doing?
