Weekly Garden Update: 3/20


Assorted Lettuces

This week we had a major lettuce harvest, and then later a kale/mustard harvest.  The fun thing is, with all the lettuce we harvested that you can’t really tell it looking at the garden.  I guess that means that lettuce season is here with us in earnest.



Kale & Mustard

We planted potatoes today, 3 boxes of them.  This year we restrained ourselves and planted 2 boxes of kenebecs and 1 box of red Pontiacs.  We’re hoping for more production thereby.

Snow Peas


The snow peas are starting up the trellis!  And the new carrot greens growth has been impressive.



Oregano has come out and started growing like crazy in the past two weeks.  I would never have guessed it would start off so fast.


Onions in a Pot

We transplanted our celeries to larger pots.  Also we are reseeding where we have had poor germination on our peppers and tomatoes – a multi-hour job.  We seeded all our melons and squash plants today for interior germination.  We’re hoping to get them in the ground earlier and as larger plants in hopes of getting more production before the vine borers get them.  We have achieved beet germination, they’re coming up in the boxes!




We planted 5 containers of extra onions that we ended up with.  The horseradish has sprung up in its container, and growing rapidly.  The figs, blueberries, and apples are all leaving out.

    Nice looking garden. I just planted snow peas but use sticks for them to climb on. Do you have rabbit or ground hog problems? Just wondering what the fencing around your beds is keeping out.

    Beautiful and bountiful lettuce and kale harvests! You are definitely in the peak lettuce season for your garden. I always am so ready for the salad season to begin but by the end of it … so ready for something else to be on the table! Lettuce and greens are such abundant producers that once they get going we are usually awash in them. I just popped the first lettuce transplants into the outdoor garden area this past weekend. I am hoping them will take hold quickly and that we will be in our lettuce season soon.

    Your harvest and beds look great! You are so far ahead of us northerners…I’m a bit jealous 🙂

    Things are coming along nicely in your garden. You still have kale, lucky you, my plants are all in full bloom now and I’m only leaving them in the garden for now to feed the bees and beneficials.

    Yum that looks like a lot of good lettuce. I love the beds too as they start greening up. I can’t wait to plant mine and get some green in my yard.

    If you can take that much lettuce and can’t tell – then yes! You are in the lettuce! 😀

    I like how you design your trellis for the snow peas.
