So without any further yammering, here's the garden:
And May and June, for comparison's sake:
That big bare patch of ground is where the compost bin used to sit. We moved it so we could stir it top to bottom, and there was quite a lot of usable soil at the bottom. An added bonus is that now Mr. G can make one pass through the beds (and onward) with the lawn mower.
Amber mentioned magic beans in her garden last month (they turn from purple to green when cooked!) and was kind enough to send me some seeds. :) I'm hoping to plant them in the empty space left behind when I uproot my potato plants.
Everything is doing well. The broccoli (unexpectedly) decided to go ahead and grow:
And in super happy garden news, the first harvest - a strawberry and ten potatoes!
The potatoes were tasty, both raw and in dumpling soup. The strawberry didn't even make it into the house.
It appears the cucumbers will be ready soon too:
I can usually count on my Black Eyed Susans to bloom by the 4th of July, and they were right on schedule this year. So cheery.
How's your garden?
