Summer Garden Tour 2016

Summer Garden Tour 2016
 

To my surprise, we're just a couple days shy of a year since we've poked around in my edible garden. If someone could stop pressing the fast forward button, that'd be great, thanks. 

Since I'm a big believer of "grow what you actually eat", you'll see a lot of the same plants as last year. The biggest change would be our new raised bed we put in on the south side of our home. I've been able to grow veggies there, but it was a lot harder to manage when I was trying to follow the square foot gardening spacing

Now that I have the new garden box packed with great nutrient dense soil, my plants are going bananas. See for yourself.

 
 

The garden has already changed a lot since I took these photos. I had to pull out the basil because the bursts of heat - yea, in Seattle! - made the sweet leaves too bitter. I replaced the herb with two cucumber plants, but nature decided there should only be one. 'Tis the law of the garden: Mother Earth gets the final say.
