Unfortunately the weeds grow just as much, if not more, than the actual vegetables and flowers so we are trying to keep ahead of them. Weeding by hand is quite time consuming so Terry is (carefully!) tilling in the aisles to keep the weeds down before they go to seed. You can see clearly where we weeded the onions by hand below.
Garlic scapes are in! We sold some at the market but they'll all need to come off to make sure that all the garlic's energy is concentrated in its bulb. If you grow garlic, it is important to remove the scapes just as you removed the flowers from your rhubarb to focus all of the energy of the plant on the good stuff!
The aruglua carpet is looking good and tasting spicy. For our first year, we're quite pleased. We're cutting it like the spring mix and will sell it by the quarter pound.
Some color is finally popping up in the garden. We have our fist periwinkle ageratum blooms and ripening currants. The sour cherries are almost ready, but probably not enough for a pie yet. The beets are coming in strong and look beautiful with their purple stems and veins!
