A garden update for November

Nov 22, 2010 by

Its been a while since I’ve done a garden update.  Its still growing like crazy and I’m loving that I can walk out to my front yard to grab some vegetables for that nights dinner.

I found this guy out there when I went to grab some parsley for the zucchini lasagna I made.  I cut the parsley way back and its growing back strong again.

And finally, we have our first artichoke.  I’ve had the artichoke plans growing bigger and bigger without any signs of a single one.  But this one is big and almost ready to eat.

I finally pulled out all the watermelon and cantaloupe.  These never quite worked out.  I grew tons of them, but they would only get to be about 4-6 inches in diameter and then rot on the vine.  Not sure when wrong with those.

My lettuce is starting to come back all on its own.  How nice that I didn’t even have to replant it!

I planted a little $3 basil plant I bought from Trader Joes when I needed some basil and this thing has gone crazy!  I’ve used it so much for cooking and it just keeps growing bigger.

My tomatoes are still overtaking my garden as well.  I never got many huge ones, but the little ones came in droves.

Cabbage is looking good

And my broccoli is doing great as well.

I just recently planted some beans and peas and went through and cleaned out a lot of over grown areas.

So far this is one of the best things I’ve ever built and I’m LOVING it.
