Garden 2011

Hello Blogworld!

I am running so behind on all my blog posts, but things have been busy around here! This past weekend, I moved into Hanover, so I've been doing lots of packing, cleaning, and now unpacking. There are many perks to my new living situation, which I'm sure will be detailed in a later post. One thing that is not so good for gardening is that there are many big, old trees blocking sunlight in the backyard. So, I've kept my garden at the barn, so I will have many excuses to go back and visit! Here are some pictures from a few weeks ago after we first planted all the plants!

Here we have lettuce, carrots, radishes, peas, broccoli, swiss chard, fennel, brussels sprouts, cornichons, zucchini & green beans. I've just started harvesting some of my peas and had my first sugar snap pea last night while I was harvesting/watering.

These are my pots that are now at my new house, so that I have some herbs readily available when I'm cooking. We have parsley, lovage, rosemary, basil, catnip, arugula, a mustard mix & some matchbox pepper plants.

This is the part of the garden that I like to call "The Annex". Here we have chives, 2 types of basil, oregano, tarragon, bell peppers, cayenne peppers, thai chili peppers, and jalapenos in the left bed. On the right, there are various tomatoes, ground cherries, and tomatillos. You can see Mo trouncing about in the background. He already misses the barn and its abundance of land.

I was a bit ambitious with the seed planting this year. These are all the plants that didn't find a home in the garden. :(

More recently, my radishes have been growing like crazy. They've been super yummy. (Artsy photo creds to former barnmate and fellow gardener Meghan)
