Garden update late spring 2015

It has been very busy around here this spring.  I added two new flower beds last year and completed my fourth garden section along my backyard fence.  It is starting to become a challenge to keep up with everything.  That is okay though. As the original beds mature with perennial plants and flowers, things will get easier.

Here is the update.  

My new apple tree

One of my baby tomatoes in my new section I created

I have beans and cucumbers planted in this bed.  The backdrop has lupines and I have two honeyberry trees planted.  The backdrop will eventually have the two honeyberry trees and then be surrounded by perennial flowers.  The front will be planted with annuals.

More lupines and a few mounds where I planted zucchini.

Potatoes and a pepper or two.

A field of volunteer dill.  I have peppers planted here as well.  Once they establish themselves, I will be mulching over the dill to let the peppers thrive.

Blueberry plant I planted this year

Year three of my strawberry patch.

The original kale I planted back in the fall of 2013

Strawberry plants that I separated from my strawberry patch last fall.  These will spread and be a ground cover for my elderberry bushes.

Looking along one side of my fence.  I have annual lettuce and then a bed of herbs in the two beds next to my dog.

Lupine plant.  These are pretty cool plants.  They are actually a legume so they put back nitrogen in to the soil.  They also reseed like crazy so one plant can make many more.

Year two asparagus.  I took two meals from these beds but then let the plants grow to make sure they grow for many years to come.

One of the sunchokes I was given by a co-worker.

Lilac bush and more volunteer dill.

My raspberry patch.  This was started as 4 plants.  There are a few more now!

Horseradish and Rhubarb

My beds I made last year.  I have mixed lettuce, kale, turnips, beets, daikon radish, garlic to name a few of the plants in this section.

As you can see, my garden is off to a pretty good start.  The year has been pretty dry so far but we just received 2 inches over the past 24 hours that soaked in pretty well so hopefully I will be able to go three years in a row without watering.
