(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Anticipating Harvest

We've already harvested a bunch of artichokes, and clearly are falling behind.

I'm having a hard time picking strawberries before Drexel does.

"Only two things that money can't buy, and that's true love and home-grown tomatoes."

I need to plant more lettuce, so I can extend the season.

The pomegranate seems well-established now, and is blooming on an annual basis.



Thanks for bits of beauty in my garden.

  2. How I love to dig in the dirt and garden, but I don't have a space for one anymore.

  4. I planted artichokes and I'm not too sure how to grow them. They have to be 4 ft across?? If so, that's 8 ft for my two plants? What should I expect?

    1. Believe it or not, my artichoke is planted in a square-foot garden. It does take up an entire 4x4 foot box, though, so 4 feet apart sounds about right.

      Artichokes are perennial. I think my plant is 3 years old now. It dies down after producing in the spring, but comes back the following year.

      If you are planting 2 plants, you might expect tons of artichokes!

  5. Your plants look lovely, especially your artichokes! I'm anticipating some of those myself---this is my first year growing them, so I'm not sure what to expect. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, nice to meet you!
