Here are some updated pictures from my 2014 garden! I added a few new raised beds and bought some dirt so we’re off to a good start! The bugs have already started to eat my green beans, but everything else looks good!

So far I have planted:

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Apple Tree
  • Peach Tree
  • Strawberries (all of mine from previous years died so I started new for 2014)
  • Blueberries (Aren’t doing well!)
  • Gourds
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Brussel Sprouts (new for 2014!)
  • Cabbage (new for 2014!)
  • Cauliflower
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Radish
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Carrots (which as usual don’t seem to be doing anything)
  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Peas
  • Green Beans
  • Potatoes
  • Herbs

So that’s where all my time at home has been going over the last few weeks! I’ll be posting updates throughout the season, so tune back in.
