On July 25th, I thought I would visually document our garden. While I keep a written gardening journal of what and when we planted, also documenting details about the plants, I wanted to “see” how things looked. I thought it would be interesting to look back next year on the same day and see what we were harvesting and eating.
So here is my photo journal of what took place this year culminating in a video done on July 25, 2020. I am amazed at the growth of the garden, and also enjoy seeing the other plants in the photos and how they did as well.
On March 22nd we put on our first crop. We had an extremely warm start to our spring this year which was great for the garden.
By April 13th things were really sprouting
By April 25th we were enjoying our first radishes
April 29th our tomatoes, peppers and eggplant went in
And April 30th salads were in full swing!
By May 17th we were daily harvesting from our garden with our lettuce, kale, chard, onions. Our tomatoes were growing well, as were the peppers and eggplants.
July 4th we were picking ripe blueberries and by July 25th, we had almost completed our harvest of them.
On July 21st we were already drying our shallots and some garlic.
We were picking cucumbers on July 21st at well!
Now enjoy the video of what we harvested to bring to our table on July 25th! Including tomatoes, cucumbers and padron peppers!
Our eggplant is starting to look beautiful too. It will be interesting to compare visual notes a year from now.
