***spaghetina, Thanks for reading my blog.***
Bed 4 Harvest so far...
Lettuce 6 1/2 pounds
Bush Beans 2 pounds
Spinach 6.3 oz's
Carrots 2.3 oz's This was a bit of a bust but I am trying again. I will grow carrots!
Round Zucchini 4 pounds
Onions 4 1/2 pound
Garlic 1.4 oz's Didn't do so well with the garlic. I have planted more to over winter in bed 2. So far so good.
Spaghetti Squash 10 pounds. I still have 13 squash to harvest. This should take me over the 100 pound mark for this season.
Currently growing in bed 4
The potato beds pulled in 4.7 pounds of early potatoes. I can't complain. I didn't think I would get any. I just placed my order for seed potatoes for 2010. They will arrive the first week of January for a mid month planting. I can't wait.
The potted raspberries have given me 2.8 pounds.
So overall this has been a successful growing season for me. Remember I came into this not knowing a thing about vegetable gardening. But with the help of my family, many of my readers, and the will to make it happen, I can now say I'm a vegetable gardener.
I think my biggest challenge for next season will be the pests. I was lucky this year but I'm sure they have found my garden and are safely tucked away in the soil for a long winters nap. Come Spring they are going to be really hungry. I'll be ready for them.
If you are thinking about putting in a vegetable garden... Go for it. You will find it very rewarding to know you can provide healthy foods for you and your family.
