Garden Update - Cucumber Harvest... What's Next?

in #garden9 months ago

It's been 3 weeks since my last garden post and quite a lot has changed in the meantime. To be honest, our garden doesn't look that green and fresh anymore, mainly because after many weeks of bad weather and rain, all of a sudden temperature went up and it was really hot and sunny. Some veggie leaves like peas and potatoes started to turn yellow and a little bit sad. Peas are all harvested now and put in the freezer so there are some empty spots in the garden. However, it's not all about looks, it's a lot more about having an abundance of homegrown, healthy food to prepare so let's take a look at some fruits and veggies that are still thriving...

Blackberries are doing so well this year, there's plenty of them and I cannot wait for them to get ripe

This tree had only a few pears last year and this year there's so many

There's also plenty of peaches on our two trees

Grapes are also looking good this year

This rosemary we got at the market in October and it survived winter in the greenhouse but it wasn't looking that great, now it's recovering, growing and looking way better

We planted a few different kinds of peppers and this is one of their first blooms

Tomatoes are growing tall so they needed support in form of the wooden sticks. This is also protecting them from winds and storms that would probably break them if they were left on their own.

Cucumbers are wild this year, lol. We have been picking them for salads every day.

And here is a random photo of the common houseleek that I often forget to take a picture of. I love the look of this plant so much, I think I want to try to propagate it


That's all for this garden update. I hope you're all doing well and staying safe. Thank you for checking out this post! :)
