Garden Updates

Green Table Grapes starting to grow
Tomatoes growing in one of the 15 gallon pots I started in the winter from last year's clone
Tomatoes started from seed taking off really fast, I think they really like the hairy vetch's nitrogen root nodes. Towards the bottom, I planted some potatoes, but we'll see if they get enough sun there
The winter Lettuces are finishing off, and the Eggplants are waiting their turn, just finished transplanting them from the little pots.

This bed was growing lettuce during the winter/spring as well. Now it's starting to get filled with the zucchinis, cucumbers, corn and pole beans. (trying the 3 sister's method) This bed, and the one behind it had the root knot nematode problems. We hope the 2 sprays of beneficial nematodes reduced the population enough. We'll see at the end of the season.
Sunchokes really growing fast, below is the bed of carrots I harvest from,when I need them.
More Tomatoes, mostly cherry. Onions and Garlic Chives too
This bed had the Garlic and now finishing off the cilantro. I'm planning on putting in the brassicas; Broccoli, Bok Choi, Radishes, Komatsuna, etc

Alma Paprika Peppers starting to gain momentum (they are in Soy Milk containers, at least I'm reusing those non-recyclable beverage containers before they take up space in the landfills...)

Blue Basil is a bit overgrown, but it's pretty...Onions, Garlic Chives, Tomatoes on the right, in the back is the Navel Orange tree, and the raised beds
