Our May Garden and a Link-Up Party
We have had a busy few weeks in the garden: planting seeds and starts that will provide food over the coming months, replacing several perennial plants that didn't make it over the winter, and of course, the never-ending battle with the grass (we removed all of our grass in favor of flowers and food producers, but that grass, it is determined). We still have a lot to do, like finishing pulling out the grass and mulching to keep it at bay, at least for a while, but I am pretty happy with where we are at. This time of year is so lovely- flowers in bloom, bees busy working, and the anticipation for the harvest to come.
This year we have planted: snow peas, 5 varieties of tomatoes, 3 kinds of peppers, cilantro, parsley, dill, basil, beets, radishes, greens, arugula, green onions, potatoes, strawberries, delicata squash, acorn squash, zuchinni, cucumbers, corn, beans, and the grapes, raspberries, blackberries and italian herbs that are perennial.
Here are a few pictures of our garden in May:
