I have been posting about potatoes so often I thought I should show you my other veggies. This is my asparagus bed. I planted two-year-old crowns and supposedly, I can make limited cuttings next spring. They look so spindly I sort of dough it.
The bell peppers are Big Dippers and are loaded with blossoms.
The Bibb lettuce is fantastic and will be my annual lettuce. It also did very well in the GH last winter.
The broccoli looks good and is about to develop heads. The three plants in front are purple cabbage.
I have not grown Brussels sprouts for a while and will not be able to predict outcome until late summer. And another three purple cabbage in front.
The Butterbush winter squash have sprouted and have to grow about 10” North to reach the trellis. I will tie them to the sticks to get them off the soil as soon as possible to help me combat the squash bugs.
Cauliflower is not showing any sign of heads yet but it usually takes longer than the broccoli.
The eggplant is chucking full of blossoms and looking great.
I free sowed the endive and thin it as we eat. As soon as I thin it, it fills back in.
Onion plants are just taking root and hard to see. I also planted 12 Alisa Craig onions that can get up to five pounds each.
Cannot say much about the tomatoes except they are on there way to higher places.
The Zucchini are on there way to the first rung of the ladder. I will see how this goes.
The sweet potatoes are growing slowly, the weather has been very cool but I hope the roots are developing well.
Ok, I have to say something about the potatoes. The ones in the foreground are the Kennebec and the ones in the background are the Yukon Gold. The fence to the right is four ft tall. As usual, all comments are welcome.
