Welcome! Come into the Potager to see what is growing in May.
The flower bed in front of the Potager:
|The Siberian Iris is in bloom.|
Straight down the middle path takes us to the old planter that my Great-Father had in his yard.
The Nasturtiums that I planted from seed are doing well. I thinned them, but they are still too close together. I'll see how they look as they mature.
In the center of the bed is the post for my whirly-gig airplane.
The interior boxes:
|Black Seeded Simpson lettuce, Pak Choi Bonsai, Red onions, white onions, Spinach, 3 carrots that wintered over and Giant Crimson Radishes|
|Freckles lettuce, Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Snow Peas and my funky chickens|
|Garlic, White Onions, Spinach, Carrots and Radishes|
|Mesclun Mix, Turnips, English Peas|
Looking from the tomato bed toward the peppers and eggplants.
|Peas on the left, roses and pansies on the right.|
|Tomato beds and swing to the left with Clematis behind the swing.|
Looking up the left hand path toward the peppers:
|The broccoli and cabbage under the floating row cover, the faucet and little blue chair and the peppers to the left, the onions, pak choi, lettuce and snow peas in the beds to the right.|
The pepper/eggplant bed:
|Peppers to the left, with White Scallop Summer Squash planted in the corner and eggplant (Black Beauty) planted and |
dusted with Diatomaceous earth, and the rose bush.
|Scallions, lettuces, jalapeno peppers, cucumbers, radishes and sweet potatoes to the left. Carrots and radishes to the right.|
Looking from the broccoli/cabbage bed toward the tomatoes.
|Tomatoes with Sunflowers in L-shaped box, scallions to the right, interior boxes to the left, hubby's muddy work pants on the fence.|

Looking through the back gate into the Potager:
Behind the Potager:
|Ever bearing in the foreground, June bearing in the background.|
|Gate with cat made by hubby, Strawberries and flowers in the back beds.|
|Asparagus and Raspberry beds.|
|Perennial flowers in the foreground, herbs in far bed on left, potatoes in box, and empty box that needs to be cleared of Nut Grass before it can house squash. Fence is eventually going to be put up. There is too much to do and not enough weekend!|
