This post is more for my sake than yours. If you are interested, read below everything that I have in the ground this year (unless otherwise indicated). This gives me a clearer idea of how much food I (hopefully!) will be harvesting over the next several months. It also shows you that it doesn't take a farm to feed a family. You'd be surprised at how much will fit on a suburban lot if you get creative.
All right, here we go...
Sown in the ground, uncovered:
Peas (snap, snow, shell)
In the polytunnels:
Chard (overwintered and newly seeded)
Miniture bell pepper
California Wonder bell pepper
Tomatoes (Roma, cherry, beefsteak)
Melons (cantelope, watermelon)
Squash (butternut, kobocha)
Apple, young honeycrisp, container
Pear, young bartlett, container
Fig, young Ruby, container
Cherry, young Stella, in the ground
Baskets of strawberries (6)
Blueberry shrubs (6)
Raspberry shrubs (3)
Whew! I think that's it for now. I will be adding to this list as the season progresses. These are just all the things that have hit the dirt so far.
I can dig it! So can you.
