Boy, the weather has been strange this spring/summer here in Wyoming! We've gotten so much rain!
It's raining tonight which is awesome because my beds were getting a bit dry.
Now, on average... our area gets 6" of moisture a year. We're in a high desert. I think that we've already gotten that 6" plus... The countryside is really getting green!
I am so enjoying my garden! I love to walk around my boxes and see the growth of my plants! I'm sooo happy that I decided to do Square Foot Gardening (SFG) this year! It sure was a LOT of work getting it set up... but I've pulled less than 40 weeds so far this season... and THAT is just incredible!!!
Whole Garden photo...
Here's the whole garden picture that I took this afternoon from a 2nd floor window.
I think that I can safely put away all my plastic sheeting now... although... typically we a 1 or 2 hail storms in June.
In the 2nd row (front to back) you can see my Wando Peas (a bush variety)... don't they look organized?
Yukon Golds... update
My Yukon Gold Potatoes are starting to flower. They're getting taller and the plants are filling out. If you look at the garden overview photo, my potato box is the 3rd one on the right... my onion box is just to the left of it there in the middle.
When are Potatoes Ripe?
I was just over to Skippy's Garden where Kathy has a great post on potatoes... "When are Potatoes Ripe." I found it to be very helpful! Thanks for that great post Kathy!
Click HERE for detailed information on growing Yukon Golds. I read that they're ready in about 90 days... so that would be August for me.
-Carrots (a whole 4x4 bed!)
-Beets (4 squares)
-Radishes (too many squares to count!)
-Collards (2 squares)
I was so inspired by the beautiful Collards that so many of you are harvesting... that I planted 2 squares and they're sprouting up!
We continue to enjoy salad greens and some radishes... and a few onions that we plucked because I double planted a few squares.
Love your comments! It's so much fun to read your garden blogs! I'm learning so much!
