Who has planted a garden this year and how is it doing?
We planted tomatoes and pepper plants along with planting pea, green beans, summer squash, pickling cucumbers and zucchini in our two gardens. Its been a little chilly, cloudy and damp up here in Michigan this year so far so I have to replant the beans and peas this weekend.
Strawberries we planted a row of last year have already produced a handful for us so I’m expecting a lot more since they are ”ever bearing” and produce all season. Plan to be making a lot of jam this year out of those!
Three years ago when it was our first summer in this house I rescued three close to death asparagus plants on major clearance at Kmart, glad to say all three are doing very well and will be ready to harvest next spring. I wanted to give them an extra year to get established, normally its recommended to give them 2-3 years to mature and they already had a really rough start in life.
