Hi guys and gals,
I have tons of fruit trees such as apple, fig, plum, pear, peach, mulberry, asian pear, lemon,lime,orange, tangerine, blood orange and lemon planted and producing.
And my herb garden is where I want it to be.
So, that brings me to the main reason for this thread, I am...
Your going to be busy!
You might want to rethink 4 feet wide raised beds, I find that I can't easily plant and weed with that width. I use 2 foot and 3 foot wide beds and I really like them.
I have >3,000 sq. ft. of raised beds which is ample for my family of four.
Not even close.
I still have some tomatoes too, I just didn't photograph them.
Its been in the high thirties at night here, a very warm and mostly dry January so far.
In fact, my snow peach is starting to bloom right now which deeply concerns me.
Here are some pictures I took today of some of the things growing on in the garden.
We got a nice well-needed rainstorm last night...
Arugula - going to seed
Seemed like a good day to plant Parsnips. I have never grown them before,but I have researched that they are very slow (3-4 weeks) to germinate and they can take up to 180 days to mature. They need to be sowed in a place that won't be disturbed.
Working a new seed bed for the Parsnips...
I gave away a lot of produce to friends and family as well. Plus, I did a lot of canning of tomatoes this years since I had over 300 lbs of tomatoes alone! I have 1.5 acres on my property. Most of the beds that law fallow right now will be filled with summer crops that take up more...
My goal was to produce 1,000 lbs of produce this year and so far I am over 1,150 lbs for the year and counting!
Here are some pictures I took this morning from the farm:
Broccoli, Cabbage, Swiss Chard, Mesclun Mix
Swiss Chard, Broccoli
Peppers and Collard Greens...
The onions I bought as you see them, they were from a local nursery in 6-pack starter packs. they are a white onion called texas grano.
yep, that is a red mizuna. Hopefully it will survive, everything thinks mizuna is tasty!
