Garden at the beginning of May

Beds are ready to be planted – now I just need to actually do it.

I’m behind in planting things, especially since I’m expecting a warm year. So far, potatoes, oca, magenta spreen, perpetual spinach, asian greens, lettuce, peas, radishes, beets and carrots have been planted directly in the ground. It is probably time to get my broccoli and leek seeds starts planted. I’m also wondering if I’ve missed the window for planting parsnips.

In the foreground is my garlic, beside it will go more carrots, beets and parsnips. Next bed is my broad beans beside various greens. Behind it is the bed of potatoes, oca and magenta spreen – there is a bit of space left in that bed which I’ll likely fill with some bush beans

Some new beds going in – I’ll be covering these with a plastic greenhouse.
