So like most of the United States, May was filled with planting:
50 tomato plants, 22 sweet and hot peppers, 15 eggplants/aubergines, 22 broccoli, leeks, bush beans, cucumbers, melons, loofa, bitter melon, pole beans, summer squash, zucchini, asparagus, and artichokes were all planted out in the garden.
I also started Brussels sprouts and basil from seeds, and started rooting grocery store starts like bunching onions, basil, and lemongrass.
And we are harvesting:
Nothing so far, but there are big hopes for the end of June or beginning of July.
To do list for June:
- Put up tomato supports which consists of sandwiching plants between 2 rows of fencing.
- Put up trellis system for pole beans, vining plants, etc.
- Plant out Brussels sprouts, basil, bunching onions, and lemongrass.
- Mulch the whole garden.
Vegetables that are new to us for growing as well as starting from seed:
Asparagus, artichoke, broccoli, and Brussels sprout.
