Weekly Garden Update

I've been harvesting lots of produce from the kitchen garden: chard, lettuce, tomatoes, yellow summer squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. The basil will be ready soon as will bell peppers. I've also got lots of greens that should be ready for harvest in a couple weeks: arugula, kale and a few others. Other fall crops that were just planted: broccoli, spinach, radishes, and sugar snap peas. I've just ordered garlic and onions which will be planted soon.

I've also started the fall phase of the forest garden with cardboard and straw mulch. In September I'll be planting a variety of berry bushes for the shrub layer: currants, gooseberries and a few others.
