Things are really starting to grow in the garden! Yesterday as I was walking around it, I realized that, other than the garlic, onions, strawberries and asparagus, I started everything in the garden this year from seed.

A few years ago, when I was just starting to grow vegetables, I didn't have much luck with seed starting. I lost many, many seedlings to dampening off, too much water, too little water, not enough light, or something.

I've come a long way!

We're still planting out many of the seedlings & direct sowing, but we're also starting to harvest a few things too.

Here's a recap of what we've harvested so far this year ...

Growing Asparagus

Asparagus: 45 pounds!


Growing Peas

Peas: 1 ounce

 I'll get a better photo of the peas next harvest... I completely forgot about getting a photo and immediately ate the handful of peas I harvested yesterday.


Growing Radishes

Radish: 10 ounces

This would have been a bit higher, but my husband ate a few before I had a chance to weigh them.


Growing Strawberries

Strawberries: 1 pound 7 ounces


Growing Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard: 11.2 ounces
