Back to Farming

A few shots of 3 of the 4 gardens we have. I did not get a shot of the pumpkin patch. These were from a couple weeks back. Not bad for almost a month worth of rain. This past June was the wettest on record so far. I think it rained 28 out of 30 days. Very devastating to Maine farmers! Fortunately we only lost several potato plants and some of our other crops were a bit set back.


Wanting to keep a yearly record of what we planted this season I will list what’s growing:
basil
*thyme
oregano
*marjoram
cilantro
parsley
dill
*rosemary
*lovage
lettuce
*parsnips
squash (3 varieties)
zucchini
cauliflower
peppers (green and hot)
cukes (3-4 varieties)
pumpkins (3-4 varieties)
corn
turnip
potatoes (yukon and sweet)
peas
*kale
swiss chard
beets
green beans
edamame beans
cantaloupe
watermelon
gourds (*birdhouse, *snake, decorative)
broccoli
carrots
garlic (3 varieties)
onions (red & white)
tomatoes (3 varieties)

(The items with a * are plants we’ve never grown in the past. Last year was the first time I grew herbs. I regret not growing those years ago.)


Wow that is a lot when you write it all down. I am sure I have forgotten but I will add it as I think of it.
