pics of veggie garden in burnaby, bc, as the growing season progresses...

Post by troy »

APRIL 11, 2022... it's still rather cool outside but i'm grateful that the garlic i planted last winter, the chives and some cool weather crops such as lettuce, spinach and radishes have popped up in the hoop house. all of the beds have been amended with aged turkey compost and some of the beds have bokashi buried in them. next time, i'll bury the bokashi deeper because the crows have been digging them up...

MAY 13TH.... radishes seem to be doing well and we've been harvesting them since about 2 weeks ago. i noticed that some of them split - not sure why... perhaps over watering? garlic are now over 2 feet tall and some are about the same diameter as a loonie... and the mint, as expected, are thriving in containers...

the garlic now are about 2 feet tall... with all the cool, wet weather we've been getting, i haven't watered them at all... i also recently planted leeks between the garlic. according to dan's most recent video (vignette 1.2 - planting after covering the ground with decaying plant material), i think i could have planted the leeks deeper.
