Here are a few shots to let you see what is happening around here. This first picture is of my cucumbers sprouting in my front window. The cups with nothing happening yet are the watermelons. Hopefully they'll be up soon.
This next picture is of my second round of broccoli. There are already a few in the garden, but I needed more!
Here are the tomatoes and peppers sunning themself on the back deck. There are also 2 tomatillos and an eggplant from my wonderful sister inlaw. I blame her for my addiction to gardening. She's also very much into organic and heirlooms.
This is a overview of the main garden. There are cardboard boxes in the walkways to keep down the weeds. Not much is growing in there yet, but there are a few cabbage, broccoli and onions. The peas are also up along the edge. Beets, chard, zucchini, butternut squash and baby blue hubbards are in but not up yet.
This is the cold frame I talked about that is now a lettuce bed. If you look closely you may be able to see a few baby sprouts just starting to poke their little heads yet.
Here is a photo of the pile of sod that will be a new bed. I'm still so thrilled with how well it broke down. This year it will be an overflow bed, next year it will become a permanent bed for garlic and onions.
Lastly this is a picture of my peach tree. Behind it you will see a cherry tree and one of my 2 apple trees. I'm planning at least 6 more trees this year. Right after this was taken, I pulled most of the blossoms off. That might seem mean, but I really want the tree to put its energy into getting big, healthy and strong. If it is working on fruit, it may get week and die. Believe me there were so many tiny peaches on there, the poor thing would have bent to the ground from the weight.
