|I harvested the first plants of the season! Lettuce and kale. Some of the leaves look like they have been munched on by something (snails?).|
|The beets and radishes are coming up!!!|
|Here is my lettuce, kale, and spinach! The lettuce wasn't quite ready for harvest.|
|There are mushrooms growing next to my garlic. They are Peziza vesiculosa, aka Blister Cups. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peziza_vesiculosa|
I haven't found a source that indicates they are edible.
|Here are some more of the same mushrooms. These mushrooms are common in horse manure, which is the dominant composition of my garden.|
|I attempted to grow squash next to my greens, but a frost destroyed them all. However, some parsley might be coming up (either that or weeds). So far, the horse manure hasn't had many weeds.|
|My harvest of greens!|
|Inside, I am growing eggplant (foreground), peppers, lavender, and tomatoes.|
|The tomatoes are having a hard time getting enough water.|
|The eggplants are looking healthy.|
|A couple of my pepper seedlings are also doing well.|
|I am also growing two varieties of cucumber. The seedlings are looking healthy.|
|The vine is my remaining pea plant. I also have tomatoes in this picture.|
So....that is it for the garden update. I promise not to keep you hanging much longer. I will finish one of my jobs in late June, but I will update before then.
I hope to talk about mushroom cultivation, jumpstarting a compost pile, working with concrete, and other fun garden-esk topics.
