Now that the weather is warming up things are finally starting to grow well in the 5×5 Challenge garden. I planted ‘Golden’ peas two weeks ago and the lettuce I seeded a while ago it starting to size up nicely as well.
Of course the weeds are growing as well! I don’t mind the dandelions so much, the have deep tap roots and pull up nutrient from below. I might eat the greens, or I might keep pulling the leaves off and laying them around the peas as a mulch.
Overall the garden is doing very well, in just another week or so I’ll be harvesting greens for our dinner!
How’s your edible garden growing? Any harvests?Filed under 5x5 Garden Challenge | Comments (9)
