The Garden Update

Well, it’s been about a week since the last post about the garden and it’s high time I documented all this growth! It’s been a very good week. We’ve been battered and bullied by wind and hail and tons of rain but that hasn’t seemed to bother any of the plants (with the exception of the tomatoes… they’ve definitely seen better days).

Every last one of the potatoes has decided to poke their starchy little heads up! It’s very exciting. They’ve been growing at least 1/4 inch a day, the blue potatoes are about four or five inches tall now and the yukon gold’s have only been up for a few days and look how big they are already!

The peas are going gangbusters, especially since they’ve finally reached their trellis. I’ll have to tighten things up a bit after all that stormness.
peas_13Ooooohhhh! Look at them twine! It’s pretty darn cute, if you ask me. And you did ask me, right? Good, I thought so.

Peas peas peas…

Oh, and I’ve more or less neglected to tell you about the beds in the front yard. So far we have chives, pineapple mint, apple mint, spearmint, mint, blackeyed susans, poppies, lemon verbena, thyme, sedum, forget me nots, and tons of other plants neither mummy or I can remember. It’s going to be so good this summer!

Oh and P.s. the artichokes are doing really well too! Go artichoke go!

No sign of sage seeds or carrots yet… sigh… I feel like Pongo and Perdita in 101 Dalmations after the puppies were born… or something. Too far? Yeah, probably.
