The dust has settled. I have a new garden, actually, five small new gardens, a new irrigation system that is probably more complex than it needs to be, and a bunch of great ideas. And we all know where that goes.
|Beds #1 and #2, bustling with potato-ey action|
Deer Tongue (bolted)
Red Deer Tongue (bolted)
Salad Bowl Leaf Lettuce (wilting)
Space Saver Spinach (bolted)
Red potatoes (Norland) - these are doing far better than I hoped, and unfortunately are taking over the garden.
Carrots - Danvers Half Long - getting short and stumpy carrot varieties is a necessity for raised beds
Soft Neck Garlic
|Random pumpkins from seed in compost|
Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean
Petite Bell Pepper
Amish Paste Tomato
Random pumpkin vine....???
I'd like to add a few more herbs like the Carribean Culantro. I'd also like to find a spot to hide one more specialty pepper, either a special chili or a type of Carribean habanero...haven't decided.

Sad I missed:
Crookneck squash - one of the few "real" vegetables I truly enjoy.
Sunflowers - not enough space or time this year
Bee Balm and Bergamot - all were transplanted...not sure they will all bloom in their new home
New this year:
Red Dragon Sedum
