June Garden

In early June the Contender green beans were growing and filling in their planting area.


Later on, we picked about 12 pounds... and they're still blooming!


The many tomato plants are also growing with a few blooming. I have to keep reminding myself they are heirloom and will not produce as quickly nor as fast as hybrid varieties. sigh.




Fancy pumpkin leaves!


I planted and replanted okra in a new extended section of our back garden. The plants are still a bit scattered on the west end, but the east part of the 3 rows are flourishing. 

Below: Our son planted the rest of his sweet corn seed left from last year and is hopeful it will not get eaten by worms this time. (However the tiller was broken down at the prime weeding time and his watering has produced lovely tall weeds in between the rows.)



The rather large pea trellis/gate was overkill for the 3 piddly plants that made it to the top. It is going to be perfect for the many cucumber plants that are rapidly growing though.

 



Our family of 7 has quickly eaten spinach, lettuce, greens, chard, kale, basil, cilantro, parsley, and green beans out of the garden so far!

Produce harvested in June: 22 pounds
Produce harvested in May: 1 pound
