Quite well actually. I was worried when we finally got the raised garden that it wouldn’t produce because it was late and it was SO cold but it doesn’t appear to be a problem.
The first weekend in June my garden looked like this:
The Marigolds dwarfed the cilantro, lettuce, peppers and tomato starts.
I had no idea the cilantro would get so tall and the peas have positively taken off.
The carrots are up:
And a pepper is appearing:
Here’s my garden yesterday:
From here you can hardly tell one plant from the next. The cilantro is HUGE! The lettuce doesn’t look like lettuce anymore but the bunny loves it.
I have a feeling I should have kept the cilantro pruned so it didn’t flower but the flowers are SO dang pretty and they attract lots of subjects for me to photograph. I just can’t get myself to cut it back.
Check out my sugar snap peas. Later I picked it and gave it to Elias to chew on.
Here’s my pepper. It’s a purple pepper. I doubt I’ll get a peck to pick from my one plant though.
I also get the occasional ladybug. They are my favorite because they eat the pests.
My tomato blossom. There’s a bunch. Mmm. I have big plans for some yummy pasta sauce with those tomatoes. I can taste it now.
And some how I’m not afraid of bees when my camera is between them and me. (Though I confess I had my long lens on. LOL)
I just bought some basil the other day since the seeds I put in didn’t come up very well. I think it was too cold. And the carrot tops are tall enough that I’m starting to wonder how you know when to pick a carrot. I guess I have a lot to learn still but I have what’s important, lots of things to photograph.
