Garden Update July 2012

Here are some pictures of the garden as it has looked so far this season:

This is the herb garden

Here is the garden for humans as of 7-3-23 (less than a month and a half after it was planted)

The 2011 garden saw an astonishing number of pollinators. This year there are still many pollinators, but nowhere near as many as last year. I’m not sure what that’s all about.

There has been a change of plan about the arbor. Out of concern for high winds in a hurricane, we have decided that it would be better to start smaller and just have a separate structure over each garden bed for the vines to grow on rather than an arbor over the whole garden. If it holds up well, then maybe the idea of an arbor could be revisited. Making the structures for the vines will be the next big job, and needs to be done soon since the vines are already overtaking their supports.
