Well the 2016 garden is off to a very nice start. Already I have been feasting on the swiss chards that are replants from last year. As the swiss chard replants from last year go to seed they will be replaced with already steadily growing new swiss chard I planted this year and I will replace the older swiss chard with some peas I have growing already in pots.
This yeah I have swiss chard, collard greens, several type/colors bell peppers, different basil varieties, several tomato varieties, sweet red onions, yellows onions, chives, habanera peppers, jalapeño peppers, bush and gourmet beans, mesclun salad mix which consists different lettuce and green leafy vegetables for salads, mustard greens, stevia, cucumbers, squash, peas and beets. I’m sure I forgot some items but that’s most of what is planted.
I was especially attentive this year to getting the weeds out of the garden early this year and properly fertilizing the garden and it seems to be paying off. My first squash to pick should even be ready this week already with cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, stevia and beans, not far behind.
These are pictures that show what it’s all about, meals and meal prep of items from garden:
