My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

Growing, Growing, Growing! June 6, 2009

Growing, Growing, Growing!

wow, lookit that thing Grow!
gardenjune09 008This is Miracle and her amazing sunflower. She is holding a 6 foot tape measure up to it and the plant is taller than that!
gardenjune09 006The trombocino squash in a tub. Unfortunately today I discovered that the vine tip had grown into the crack at the top of the wall and in trying to get it out and bend it over to grow along under the eave I broke it ;-(
gardenjune09 005The Princepe Borhese, an heirloom Italian drying tomatoe is loaded with little green ‘maters. Can you spot  the one that ripe?
gardenjune09 003Here’s a long shot of the raspberry bed, the long green strip center left. You can’t actually see the raspberry plants from here, they are still pretty small. The 3 Heritage plants are just little green twigs. The Baba is doing much better [you'll see in the next picture]. Most of this bed is covered with the buckwheat and a few wild sunflowers. The sunflowers were the only thing that sprouted from a pack of wild flowers years ago. They have really small seeds but the chickens might like them. Towards the right is the chickens pen in it’s new spot.
