Garden Update

It has been awhile since I have given a Poor Clare Garden Update.  Here are some recent pictures of this year's vegetable garden:

Potatoes on the far left
Cucumbers at center
"Volunteer Row" (Where we deposited our kitchen compost) on the far right


Zucchini and Yellow Squash
Beyond the gate is our new section,
planted with Buckwheat as a soil builder

So far we have harvested lots of Asparagus, some Kale, Beets, and Lettuce.  The Squash and Zucchini have lots of flowers with fruit already beginning to form.  Green Beans, Tomatoes, Eggplant are up and coming.  Potato greens are beginning to die off so harvest is just around the corner.  Butternut Squash will be planted next week, God willing, along with a second planting of Green Beans.  Our roto-tiller is ailing so our friend Joe has been called to fix it along with our push mower.  While I was watering this morning, a bumble bee, covered with orange yellow pollen, stopped to watch.  Yes, summer is here!  Happy Father's Day to all our Dads!
