Garden Produce

This week I am finally seeing a little bit of produce in our raised bed garden.

Lookie! Peas!

Some of our cantalopes, potatoes, and beans are also flowering, so hopefully it won't be long before we see them producing as well.

Here is a picture of what our raised beds look like this week.

Be sure to check out the plot of land our neighbors kindly donated for us to garden, too!

And don't forget to check in with Amy's Finer Things and Getting Freedom From Debt to see how their gardens are doing.

Now it's your turn to share your gardening updates! Link up directly to your post and it will appear on all three of our blogs! Remember to include a link in your post to one of the hosts so your readers can join the fun.

  1. Oh your garden is so much further on that ours! We’ve just begun planting… we have to wait for *some* warmth. In the North of Scotland, we’re just beginning to warm up,and in some parts there are still night frosts (though not really here)
    Loving seeing your growth here x

  2. out of curiousity- how do you space your plants? i am so used to following the back of the seed packet’s directions on row spacing. it doesn’t look like you used traditional “rows”. and it looks like you have lots of plants in your bed! i’d love to try something new in the future:)

  3. Wow! Your gardens look great!
    I’m in Ontario, Canada, and we’ve had some great sunny days, so I’ve had my containers outside, but typically I wouldn’t be able to put anything up for another few weeks, so I’m really looking forward to planting more vegetables soon.
    How do you choose which plants go together in the boxes? I have a small container garden, and since space is so important, I’m wondering if you have any tips for vegetables that grow well together?

  4. We need warmth and less rain in our neck of the woods before anything is getting planted. We haven’t been able to till the ground as it is too wet. But I am working on a post about my greenhouse. Does that count?
