Garden Update

This year I decided to actually track how much I harvested from the garden. It's been doing great so far, but as the heat kicks in I think everything will start to slow down.

Here's what I've gotten so far:

Green beans (which are finished) - 2 1/2 pounds

Zucchini (which have been replanted after being wiped out by vine borers) - 6 ounces

Squash (also replanted after vine borers killed it) - 13 ounces

Bell Peppers - 2 pounds

Jalapenos - 3 ounces

Tomatoes - 23 pounds 3 ounces

As you can tell the tomatoes are going crazy and those are just the ones I've planted, not the ones from the chickens. I plan on making some sauce to freeze and then can some salsa. I'm definitely happy with the amount I've gotten so far. I wish the jalapenos were doing a little better and that the squash and zucchini weren't taken out so quickly by vine borers. The only thing that didn't take this year was lettuce. I just couldn't get it to grow.

How are your gardens faring this year?

  1. Our garden is doing pretty well, though it's really just starting for us since things have only been in for about a month. We're getting a ton of strawberries and are almost ready to re-plant the radishes. Something is eating the squash and zucchini leaves, but I think it's just the leaves they're after...I think!
