Growing Potato's update - 7/26

Peas, spinach and onions - Idaho garden. They are doing very well in the cooler climate even though they only get water every couple of weeks. In the future I will plant them further a part. They grew to tall to drive the tractor and cultivator over them.
The potato's are looking good.
I we have done a good job of keeping the weeds out. They only get watered every other week. We soak them good and they are going well.
This a row of raspberries I started last fall. The are doing well but, we won't get many berries this year.
Here you can see dirt is free of weeds and the dirt is hilled up around the planted every couple of weeks.
Here you can see the plants are starting to flower. This is the most important time to keep the plants watered, as they are now making potato's.

Garden Update - July 21

One of the best things from the garden is fresh corn.
Here is the lettuce. It's still growing well even in the heat.Thee lettuce is growing well considering how hot is is.

The tomato plants are growing out of control. The cages they were planted in are not doing much good this point. I need to get them staked up soon.

Garden Update - July 17

The summer is flying by.
The forth patch of corn is doing well.
You can see the tomatoes are starting to grow fast in the hot weather.
This is how the garden looks. A nice place to spend some time in the evenings.
I see a pumpkin in there.
The squash seem to be doing well in the grow boxes I made from worn out atv tires.
The strawberries are growing well. Hopefully nex year we will get berries.

Garden update - July 7

This is the garden as of July 7th. I have been so busy I have not had time to update the blog until now. The garden is coming along well.
The strawberries were just planted this spring as bare root plants. They are doing great!
Here are the tomatoes. They are growing like crazy.
The squash are doing good. Zuccini and Yellow summer squash.
Lettuce, spinach, and peas are finally up. The carrots are not doing well. It used petted seed for these, and they all have had a difficult time growing. Don't know wether the birds are getting the seed, or the cold rainy spring is the problem.
The gardens has a border of Lilly's.

Garden update - June 28

The potatoes have come up and are looking good. You can see the onions, peas, and spinach in the back. The carrot, and lettuce are not coming up very well. The potatoes patch only gets visited and cared for every couple of weeks. The raspberries in the foreground were transplanted last fall. They are doing well. AH
