Garden Update! – June 18, 2012Posted: June 18, 2012
Hello Foodies! My apologies again for being AWOL for a while. It’s been a busy time, what with getting married and all 🙂 I wanted to update you on the progress of the DuVal-Lycka Garden! It’s doing quite well, if we do say so ourselves.
Here is the field of potatoes, growing nice and strong. I believe that we will have more potatoes this year than we can possibly every eat. I am excited to try though!
Here is our beautiful corn shoots, popping up quite nicely! We planted 6 more rows of green beans over the weekend as well, seeing as none took off because they were being hidden at the shade of a large tree. Luckily, my landlord loves my garden so much that he chopped the tree down. Now we have more growing space!
I believe this will be the summer of strawberries! Our patch is alive and growing strong, and trying to shoot out uncontrollably again! We might have to trim some tendrils so the other plants actually survive this year! 🙂
Here is our first tiny ruby red!
The zucchini is, of course, doing quite well.
Our beautiful little onions are growing strong!
Here is the buttercup!
And the acorn.
The red pepper is doing well.
Our beast of a rhubarb plant is thriving, despite our attempts to cut it down with the help of Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton, who saved up by pulling a hefty amount of stalks just last week. Anyone want some? 🙂
Stay tuned for updates throughout the summer!
