This Spring has been a cold and wet one which has definitely been affecting the garden. We even started the month off with the first ever recorded snowfall in May! The past couple weeks have been warm though and I was (finally!) able to get my tomato plants into the ground. But now I’m having problems with the birds eating them!! Anyone have any advice for this? I think we might either buy bird tape or one of those balls that are supposed to scare them away. At first I thought it was slugs, but then I saw a bird literally ripping limbs off of my poor plants! Makes me sooo mad!!
Anyway, our garden is finally all planted and mulched. We have four 4ft wide sections with paths in between. This section has our potatoes, onions and peas.
This section has tomatoes, peppers, sweet potatoes and okra.
And this section is all tomatoes.
And this last section has our corn and beans. You can also see some of our strawberry plants on the far left. I’ve been picking small handfuls every few days.
That’s about it for now.
I can’t wait to start harvesting everything!
