2019 Garden pics!

Here are some pics of my garden this year. Now that we are in September, I wanted to capture it in all it’s glory before it’s gone. I’ve worked hard tweaking out the infrastructure with new framed beds and weed barriers and wood chips in the paths this year. Having retired from the Santa Fe Farmers Market two seasons ago has allowed me to do more in the garden. I also added some perennial fruit like raspberries and blackberries since I don’t need space for 125 tomato plants anymore! By mid-October or sooner, it will be toast with the first frost so might as well enjoy it while I have it. I have an abundance of flowers this year that I grew for my edible flower class and besides being beautiful and edible, they attract many beneficial insects and pollinators. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Nice pictures. Do you like mulch better than pea gravel? Do you use weed barrier? Thanks, Mike

    Love the Chiogga and Cylindra beets! The Kalibos cabbage is pointedly beautiful! Are those 3 Waltham butternuts on the same vine!? What is the greenery growing in the bed with the white cosmos? I admire your garden with awe from afar! Well done!!


    • The greenery with the cosmos flowers are sweet potatoes. Not sure if our season is long enough, but we will see. The 3 Waltham butternuts were on 2 vines next to each other. The garden is awesome and you got it all started. Must be nice to see what happens to places once you leave. Can’t thank you enough for all your help in the beginning of the season.
