We have rented a piece of land to grow vegetables. Community gardens are great for people like us, who don’t have a back yard. It takes only 10 minutes to walk to the community garden from our home, and by bike that’s even quicker. We also grow herbs and lettuce on the balcony and several chili varieties indoors.
Our garden looked like this a month ago (June 15). Everything was just starting to grow. Bugs love all kind of cabbages, so we have our savoy cabbage and kohlrabi in the “tent” in the background. In front of it the onions and peas have started growing and on the left there is some summer squash (green and yellow). Everything else is still under ground.
Five days later (June 20). We have covered the cucumbers with gauze and potatoes in the horizontal rows have sprouted.
July 2. Peas and potatoes are growing very well. We have pulled most of the weeds, but there are still some between the beds.
The weather has been very hot for the last week or so and everything has grown fast. I went to water the plants yesterday, but didn’t have the camera with me. We’ll be posting more pictures during the summer.
