We started harvesting early in spring which was new to us. The asparagus was finally mature enough to pick, I planted out hardy greens earlier than usual and we had our first crop of strawberries.
There were a lot of firsts this year. I planted an array of veggies that we haven't tried before.
|Dragon's Tongue Beans were a new addition|
While the peas and rutabagas had some issues, it was the opposite situation with zucchini and cucumbers.
|Zucchini's quickly grew out of control|
So many of the plants, like basil, loved the hot dry summer we had. Peppers are an iffy crop here as we don't have hot weather for long enough.
But I even managed to grow a few sweet red peppers this season.
The real star of this year's garden though had to be the tomatoes. Red ones, yellow ones, purples ones.
We ate them fresh, we made soup, we made chili, we froze them and we gave them away. If you're interested in a review of the different varieties we trialed click here. Overall a great gardening year and now I need to start planning for next season!
