I took some pics of the small plots I have in the backyard. Lots of critters here in suburbia and the rabbit fencing helps a lot.

20110603_IMG_0009.jpg Lettuce rows next to the house. Blueberry bushes in the foreground. Rabbits gnawed two of three to the ground over the winter.

20110603_IMG_0010.jpg Tomatoes, peppers and herbs in the rest.

The radishes are a dissapointment. They never balled up, just grew long and tall, even after extreme thinning. They were Burpee from Walmart.

Hoping the tomatoes and onions do well.

Dave , my radishes didn't do well either this year , looks like you have everything else growing well . Do you have to put anything special down for the blueberries being they are close to the foundation ? Heard that some of those plants like blueberries need extra acid to lower the ph because of that.

Very nice suburbia garden Dave. I can't remember if we planted any blueberries this year or not. I know we did strawberries and it will be another year or two till we can pick them. I was wondering if blueberries are the same.

That is a nice garden. My Radishes did the same thing,all tops and very little bulb. We planted 3 blueberries this year too. I don't expect much in the way fo fruit for a few yrs.
These ar High Bush and should be 8-10 ft tall at full growth.

Looks like you are doing a good job, Dave. We have some things growing in our first garden, but our biggest crop so far is weeds. I will be hopefully taking care of that next week when I am on vacation. My time off so far has not given me much time to do the things that need done, but we may be able to change that.

Looks good Dave. I didn't get a chance to put in a garden this year. Work has kept me too busy. I really miss my tomatoes and cukes.
