Around the Garden

This week around the garden some earlier plantings of seedlings are starting to take hold.  There are not a lot of words today but several photos which show the growth that we have been experiencing.  The sunny weather and occasional rainy day has really helped our garden.

Our carrots below are starting to spout and probably should be thinned.


Below one of our boxes of red potatoes is really starting to sprout.  I need to find another layer of 1x so we can add some more dirt and continue hilling the spuds!

Red Potatoes

Below most of the hard neck garlic have started to produce their garlic scapes.  With any luck they will develop their curly Q shape.

Below is one of the Nasturtium plants I stated from seed.  Its getting bigger so maybe it will flower at some point.


Some of the wife’s tomato plants have started to set fruit.

  1. I wish Dahlias did better here. Just too hot for them by mid summer

    • Yeah, about that can be said for a lot of things in GA, but despite the heat you do seem to grow a fair amount!

    • Now I am curious, I hope you post you’re plan on your blog, so I can read about it.

  3. I’d like to know if you get any honeybees pollinating your nasturtiums. I’ve planted a bunch but they’re not as far along as yours.
