The Garden, 2013

The garden this year is coming along nicely; We planted Tomatoes, Lettuce, Green Beans, Beans, Green Peppers, Carrots, Swiss Chard, Green Onions, and Cucumbers. We also planted Chives, and Cilantro, two of my favourite herbs.DSC00771

We started a little too early (mid May) and the green peppers and tomatoes never came up, so I got some “pre-started” ones from the Home Depot. They seem to be doing well. The green onions never really took off, but about 5 or so have come up. Next year I think I’ll start the green peppers, green onions and tomatoes inside, then move them outside at the end of May.

I also wanted to plant some fruit. We have wild raspberries in the back, and i was thinking of doing a “domestic” blueberry and raspberry patch. But I was also thinking of trying cherry trees, or apple trees, or maybe even orange trees (you need at least two for them to grow fruit, I’m told). If you’ve got any advise on growing fruit in the northern part of the world, let me know.

I know, I need to weed the garden.
