Garden is doing so-so these days, some are growing nicely like greens and onions, but some are not so much. Peas are definitely lagging behind, beans and asian greens were ravaged by bugs and carrots are non-existent this year, with only a handful growing instead of a full bed. But we do have enough greens and such for meals - mizuna, arugula, salads, spring onions, kale and radishes.
I went for a walk in a park after work and found a hill covered in ramps! So of course had to pick few
So I ended up with a steak and sautéed ramps in balsamic reduction. YUM!
I forgot to post harvest for today's Daphne's Harvest Monday, May 13th so apologies in advance. Here are some shots throughout the week based on what I felt like eating or snacking on :)
And some regular greens for the kitchen.
And some not so pretty - these is a lot of damage from bugs and snails once again and looks like Asian greens took the brunt of it, even if everything has been covered by floating row covers. And since I refuse to spray all this will be pulled out.
Today was a very good day to transplant my seedlings - tomatoes and peppers first. Originally I planted two 36-seed trays of tomatoes and about 24 peppers. As usual tomatoes turned into a "forest" and have been hardening off outside during the day, but only 50 will be planted in the main garden. Since we're supposed to have rain for next two days and temps in 70s today was perfect for transplant. Let's hope they like sunshine and rain.
And lastly these two containers with tomatoes will be going for my coworker's garden so hope they'll keep growing and produce for her well!
How does your garden grow these days?
