Garden Update

It has been a long time since I have posted anything about my garden, so I thought I would provide an update as to how things are going: things are going very well. Here is a panorama shot of the garden:
As you can see, it is coming along nicely. From left to right, the crops are: spinach (2 rows), cabbage, swiss chard, carrots (2 rows), yellow beans (2 rows), parsley, zucchini, green onions, lettuce, kale, cucumbers, snow peas (2 rows), sugar snap peas, arugula (2 rows), peppers and basil (mistakenly planted in the same row, and neither is faring very well), strawberries (planted at Roanne’s behest, I prefer to stick to cash crops), lettuce (another row), cherry tomatoes, and beefsteak tomatoes.

Here are some close ups of the star performers. The beans are flowering and should start producing soon:
The zucchinis have been going crazy since the day they hit the dirt, the flowers are spectacular and any day now we are going to have about 90 zucchini one our hands all at once:

The snow peas have already started producing, here is a close up of a fine specimen:

The strawberry plants are always flowering, but never seem to follow up with any berries. Maybe the local fauna gets to them before we do.

The tomatoes have a lot of flowers and some small tomatoes are starting to form, I am looking forward to those a lot.

Further updates as events warrant.
