Today was the first chance I've had to get out in the garden since last weekend. There was a nice growth spurt after all the rain.
|Overview of the potager.|
|The back bed, solidly filled with greens which are starting to bolt.|
|'Garden Sweet' pea blossoms. This is the first pea I've grown that has three blossoms to the stem.|
The bed of greens will be gone this weekend. The spinach, Thai greens and arugula are starting to bolt. This is actually to plan, as I had planned on hot weather crops to be planted next week, The peas will be the only survivors.
|The front bed is really starting to fill out.|
|Swiss chard ready for picking.|
|The carrots are now big enough to be noticeable.|
|Escarole is starting to form heads.|
|The cabbage is growing great. I may actually get a harvest from the red cabbage this year.|
I spent over an hour laboriously pulling out maple seedlings in the pool bed, again! I spent the same amount of time last weekend doing the sale this thing.

|The pool bed facing the pool. The red cabbage is starting to grow fast.|
I was able to get one project completed. The bed where the burning bush was had finally been addressed. The landscape fabric under the mulch was removed and the bed dug over. I did discover that the stump of the burning bush finally show signs of growth, so it is going to remain. The bed will be filled annuals and some ornamental vegetables.
|The before shot. The after will follow soon.|
Tomorrow, I'll be spending a good part of the day washing all of those bolting greens,,,
