In this post from early June, I shared a few pictures from the garden to give an idea of what I had started in the various beds.
This post will show the difference that 3 weeks makes. Here we are at the end of June and everything is booming!.
Compare this shot (below left) of the potato patch with the earlier picture. At nearly 2 months these spuds are now showing the flower tops and during the month of July, the leafy green vegetation will wilt and die. The potatoes will be ready to be dug up at that time. Or, I may leave them in the ground for another couple of months to allow them to get bigger. They will keep very well in the soil and that saves me the trouble of having to make room in storage.
Another comparison shot — The Brussels sprouts;
These hearty plants will withstand the cold driving rains and even a heavy frost as summer fades and autumn settles in.
As promised, a picture of the happy gardener standing next to his mighty asparagus fronds.
Snow peas are really producing now. I had some last night in a stir-fry I whipped up.
The final shot is looking north.
