2014 Garden

This year our garden looks to be particularly successful. We've had just the right amount of rain, the potatoes sprouted with about 75-80% success, all the other plants are doing very well with very little insect damage (no flea beetles at all on the potatoes, yet), and things just look really good. Just because of bad timing when we were gone for ten days, we missed most of the asparagus, but it will be even better next year because we did.

We planted lots of onions (4 varieties), eight varieties of potatoes, 40 cabbage (early, late, red and Napa), ten Tuscan kale, Swiss chard, 18 eggplant (Japanese, Italian purple and white), five tomatoes (Roma), 20 peppers (Padrón, Calabrian, jalapeño, Ancho and bell), green beans, Lima beans, cucumbers (picklers and eating cukes), jack-o-lantern pumpkins, sunflowers (cutting and giant), carrots (yellow, orange and purple), herbs (mint, parsley, rosemary, basil and thyme), arugula, plus existing beds of raspberries (4 years old), asparagus (2 beds, 4 & 2 years old)), rhubarb and horseradish. If all continues to go well with warm temperatures and enough rain, this could be our best garden yet.
