How's your garden growing?

May 29, 2012

I'm pleased with the progress of my garden, but worried about rain. I don't like to water. The potatoes in front I planted. The potatoes coming up in the middle and back of my garden overwintered from last year. We had such a mild winter that every little lost spud sprouted. I also have volunteer cilantro.

For mulch I'm using finely ground wood chips from two stumps we had removed. I'm not sure that's the best mulch, but it's what I had in great volume close at hand. In the past I have put down newspapers and covered with straw. That works well until the straw spouts in July and my whole garden looks like an oat field by August.

What's in your garden?
