So, my plants had somehow magically gone far beyond the number of square feet I had for them. I gave up struggling with how I was going to find room for them all, and just built another bed. It is definitely getting crowded out there now!
New garden bed
The new bed is 7'x3' and just the right size to squeeze in between the big bed and the pumpkin bed, with a narrow walk space around it. It holds all of the peppers, most of the cucumbers, and three tomatoes that were donated to me.
Today in the garden
I hadn't realized just how out of control my plants were until I planted the new bed and realized I still had more tomatoes than there were spots for. I got a bit carried away after last year's harvests were so poor, seems I figured I would need more of everything to improve my harvests. I still don't know what to do with the potatoes!
As the strawberry harvests are finally starting to slow down, the blueberries are just beginning to ripen. My single blueberry bush isn't producing bucketloads, but it does seem to be content and has now provided a total of 7 berries. Not bad for a first year. I have a feeling that my harvests are going to get much smaller for a few weeks, the spring plants are just finishing up, and the summer ones aren't quite ready yet.
I will wait with bated breath for the first tomatoes...
