Happy Summer! We’ve had phenomenal weather over the last few weeks and my garden has totally exploded. My tomatoes, tomatillos and peppers are all flowering, the beans are finally starting to grow up their lattice and we’ve been eating lettuce greens for weeks! I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR.
I’ve had some unique challenges this spring that I’m happy to leave behind (looking at you, endless rain). My tomatillos are not doing very well, I think they are probably too delicate to be grown in such a windy environment, but that’s for another post. Everything else is doing well so far so fingers crossed! Here is a photo update of everything growing, to celebrate the first day of summer.
I am overall really happy with the progress of the garden so far, apart from some issues. The experimental tomatillos and beans will be written about in more detail soon as I want to discuss some of the unique challenges with growing these two in a windy space (and whether or not it’s a good idea). Hope that the weather is treating you right and your garden is growing well!
