Harvest Updates

Our Garden was pretty successful this year. This abundance is coming from 7 raised beds, each 3'x8' in dimension, 1 psudo-raised bed constructed of round stepping stones put rows like cookies lined up on their ends in the herb garden. The fig tree is in the same area as the 7 beds and the Blackberries are draped on picket fences around the fruit trees. I hope our Garden does decently next year...I've started a few more cucumber and zucchini plants. I suppose it's a small gamble as fall is approaching soon. The beans are surprising me with another flush of blossoms, setting little baby beans. I've started some Romaine Lettuce in the shady areas, under Pepper plants, in the potted Wisteria (I'm betting on an educated guess, that the wisteria is a legume relative that fixes nitrogen), and some more lettuce under the fava beans shaded by the mandarine tree. I'm debating if I should clone some tomato plants because some of them have mites...the dreaded mights that devastated my crops last year.

You are having a GREAT harvest!!! It all looks wonderful. I really have to get a composter this fall. Our dirt is like clay, hard to get things to grow...:(
