What’s growing outside the Hoop House?

Our first head of broccoli

Lots of lettuce

Mint, can’t kill that stuff! Curious as to how others use mint. We use ours in lemonade and that is about it. This is my 3rd year growing herbs. I think they are much easier to grow then veggies, thank god for Maine Man cause we’d be starving 😉 but in good flavor.

MM put in an asparagus bed last year. He added to it this year. I cannot wait to harvest that goodness in the next a year or two.

This picture was taken over a week ago. It is amazing how much the garden has grown since. I will post an updated aerial photo (from the barn loft) picture in a couple weeks to compare.
We have herbs, corn, and potatoes in that garden.

This is the pumpkin/gourd garden.
Just behind that is a strawberry patch.
I neglected to take a picture of MM’s other garden but here are a few pictures of the goods grown there.


Lots of garlic, we’ve already harvested a few bulbs.

Kale grows faster then I can it cook up. Honestly I think I still have some in the freezer from last year.

…and more lettuce. We eat from the gardens daily and fortunately have enough to share with our friends & family. I have froze a couple bags of peas and canned some rhubarb. My plan is to can salsa, spaghetti sauce, pickles, zucchini relish, and green beans. I’d like to put up more but I also want to enjoy the summer with the kids. Just need to keep that balance.
