It’s been a while since I talked about my 5×5 Challenge Garden. I must admit, it’s a bit overgrown. The lettuce I started this spring grew like crazy almost shading out the tomatoes that were planted in their midst. Then the golden peas grew rampant and were blown over when the hurricane came through last week. As a result, the garden is rather in shambles.
I ripped out all the lettuce earlier this week. I plan on harvesting most of the peas while leaving a few to set seed. Then they will be ripped out and replanted with something else, perhaps bush beans. The tomatoes need tied up and staked along with a good mulch around their feet. After that the garden should look neater and the tomatoes will start growing well.
Does your garden ever get out of control?
