Our Garden: June Update

I know it’s already July, but I’m just now getting around to sharing these photos from June! I showed some of our seedling plants in my first garden post this year, and here’s where they are now! They’ve been successfully transplanted and seem to be thriving despite the unusually cold start they had followed by the lovely harsh wind that’s been ripping through our state.

Our first bed has onions, lettuce, carrots, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, peppers, tomatoes, basil and parsley.

Our second bed contains strawberries, watermelon, and cantaloupe.

The third bed isn’t worth showing, its mostly corn, cucumbers and zucchini but they’re still babies.

I’m getting a canning lesson from my good friend at Our Family Homestead this weekend and will share that with you once I know what the heck I’m doing!

    I'm stopping by from TOS. It looks like your garden is coming along nicely, and so did your Strawberry Jam! Have a wonderful day!

    I wish my garden was thriving like yours! That's what happens when your lot is on top of a rock quarry!

    We did a raised garden this year too and we love it! Between the garden and our CSA, we always have something fresh and healthy to eat.

    Your garden looks so neat & tidy, our garden looks like a jungle! LOL I guess zucchini will make any garden look like a jungle though… : )

    Your garden looks good. Your lettuce is pretty. It is too hot here and all of mine has gone to seed. Have fun with the canning!

    What variety of lettuce is that??? I've not been pleased with the lettuce we've had. Maybe it's the weather more than the variety, but I'd still love to know! :)Great garden!

    Stopping by from the crew to envy your garden. I love to garden… and we have a small container garden on our town-home patio… but I just can't help but be envious every time I see someone with a "real" garden.
