Trying and trying again is the key to succeeding with gardening. Sometimes you just have to figure out what a certain veggie likes in your climate and garden. That's why keeping notes is so important. Now I know that potatoes and corn do best if planted in February here...even if I do have to protect them from the rare frost. Those rare frosts have come a lot more often in the past two years.
Yes the potatoes are mostly a really nice size. Seeing them next to the garlic makes them look smaller than they are. The garlic is just really big! I put three of the garlic in the horticulture show and people kept asking if it was elephant garlic. Nope, It's just really big garlic. Thank you chickens for all that awesome fertilizer!
There's also some scallop squash, yellow squash and zucchini, bok choy, wax beans, and blue lake green beans. I find the bush beans do best for me. There's a red onion in there and some herbs: parsley, thyme, and basil. I think tonight's dinner will be completely from the garden!
This is one of my favorite plants for pots, angel wing begonias. It does well when I forget to water it. It gets a little leggy, but with a trim it bushes out nice and full. It also roots easily in water.
