We wrote a while ago about a beautiful front yard vegetable garden we built; here are new photos showing the garden about a month later - in very early May. We've built some climbing frames for peas and beans, transplanted strawberries, garlic and rhubarb, and (with the owners) have helped plant bok choi, pak choi, turnips, carrots, beets, lettuce, potatoes, and some herbs. The orange thyme between the flagstones is growing well, and will eventually form one continuous seam of aromatic beauty amongst the stones!
There's still room for the heat-loving plants to go in - tomatoes, squashes, peppers, more herbs, and so on. And of course, the greens and peas can be resewn in successive "flights" - every three or four weeks - to keep a steady supply coming for much of the summer.
In the fall, while the last tomatoes are still ripening on the vine, the garden can be converted into a winter garden - broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower and brussels sprouts interspersed with beds of kale, garlic, onions and so on. We can also cover one or more of the beds, and grow lettuce for year-round harvesting!
