The happy garden

Keeping on if not keeping up.

The big garden isn't a disaster with weeds but definitely not pristine.


An order of green, split hardwood for future winters.

The potatoes do a good job of keeping weeds controlled by vigorous growth.

But the onions are a mess.

Update on the earthbox experiment:
Peas did not do well at all, peppers are holding their own, celery and leeks look good.

The broccoli are great, strawberries and dill are flourishing.

Lettuce are thriving, onions and dahlias are going well.

Your potatoes are looking great, all ours now have early blight - fortunately they are all early or 2nd early varieties so there are good sized spuds there!

I can't see many weeds - ;)
