spring garden progress - may 2017

Spring garden photos after a month of growth (May 2017).  Ideally, these would have been at this stage in April, but I'm keeping them cool with short daily waterings.  The garden includes: various peppers; various tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, and mint.

birds and bird feeders...

In addition to my primal gardens, I have a few bird feeders, which attract some neat birds and wild life.  Cardinals, doves, colorful sparrows, and squirrels visit my primal lands.  Sunflower seeds are the most popular item on the menu.

brussels sprouts

Here's a collection of my brussels sprouts plant.  To my surprise, it grew for several months and the plant itself got pretty massive before deciding to produce these cool, little sprouts that you see here.  Only the stem with the sprouts are sold in grocery stores, but you can see the massive leaves that support the growth of these cool cousins to the cabbage plant.

The photos are from Oct 31, 2016 to May 23, 2017.   Typical maturation period is 80-90 days, so I'm going for the world record on time to maturity.

spring garden selection - may 2017

A snapshot of my spring garden selection.  A few bags of soil to add to my existing garden beds.  Once the garden beds are established, each successive year simply requires a bag or two of garden soil in addition to my composting soil, which I spread over each garden bed.

Marigolds add some color and deter garden insects.  In this photo, I have a mixture of hot peppers; green and red bell peppers; various tomatoes; basil; and a cilantro plant.  I still plan to purchase some cucumber plants and maybe some summer squash.
