update on our garden plot

It’s been a really busy summer and we’ve been busy doing so much that I haven’t had a chance to catch my breath and put up a post here.  I finally remembered to take the camera to the garden, so I have a few garden shots.

Here’s a shot showing the long dimension of the garden.  You can see the wall o’ beans on the left, the nice mulched path down the middle.  It’s amazingly green!

Here’s a picture of one of the smaller of our boxes – it’s 2ft by 4ft.  There’s a couple of squares of collard greens, basil, thyme, kale, chard, beets, and marigolds.  The kale is coming along pretty slowly, but the rest is doing great!

We are getting at least 4 grocery-sized bags of produce out of the garden every week.  We’ve had a couple of disappointments (cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers), but overall we are getting a lot out of this little bit of land.

Tonight for supper we had tomatoes, green onions, beets and greens, and mint, all from the garden.
