I completely forgot to update how my garden was going at the start of month 3, so here's another mid-month update! It's neat to see the photos over time.
From oldest to most recent:
Monster growth! My snowpea trellis is WAYYYYY too wussy. Next year I'll put up sections of fence.
Herbs - Except for flea beetles devouring the basil, all the herbs are doing great! Even the 4 yr old+ cilantro and basil seeds sprouted. I'm quite happy to have fresh cilantro, thyme, and chives all the time. I put chives in everything. Anyone know what to do with fresh sage and oregano?
Tomatoes - Looking scruffy and on the small side, but doing ok. No recent bird attacks. Next year I will focus on cherry tomatoes instead.
Cabbage - They finally look like cabbage heads! I'm a bit worried that inside they'll look like Swiss cheese from the flea beetles and cabbage worms.
Lettuce - WOW. We have a lot of lettuce. I like the flavour of the Buttercrunch the best, but they are all good now that I've thinned them more and they're more mature. I'd come in with a colander full of lettuce and Sean couldn't tell where I'd removed it from, there was so much...
Beets - All pulled up. Alas, only two beets grew bigger than my thumb tip; the rest were small and super bitter. Gack. As in, "are you sure beets aren't poisonous?" bitter. Thankfully the greens are tasty!
Snow peas - Super! We love these, and I can pick a handful every other day or so. They are just staring to die off now. We'll need a composter soon for sure.
Second plantings of beets, radishes, and lettuce - will see how far these get before the first frost. I really hope the beets do better this time.
