May Update

Here's what my patch of dirt looks like this month.

On the left you can see my legumes - broad beans, peas and runner beans, all coming on nicely. Behind them the potatoes are breaking the surface. You can't really see them but trust me - the carrots and parsnips are germinating, as are the onions. The sweet corn and squash will soon be ready to go in and in the greenhouse I'll be growing melons, peppers and plum tomatoes.

I feel hungry already. :-)


  1. Oh wow!!

    It looks fab!! And really coming along nicely! Well done you!

    Yum, yum indeed!

    Take care

  2. This is terrific! One of my co-workers just put some of her seeds/seedlings in last weekend. The traditional planting time for most Canadians is after the May long weekend (third Monday), once the risk of frost has passed.

    Will you be blanching for the fall and winter?

  3. Will I be blanching?

    I think you're going to have to explain that one to me :-)
