The garden is beginning to be stressed from the increasingly stronger sun and longer, drier days. March is usually the last good month of our growing season and the longer-season vegetables are now being harvested. Below are some pictures of what I have been growing and harvesting during the past month.
First, the window boxes on the back wall of my house. These are producing a wide variety of greens including spinach, endive, turnip greens, leaf lettuces, calalu, and more!
The picture below shows a close up of some of the greens.
Below are some of the window boxes that contain herbs. These have 4 different varieties of basil: Italian, Holy Thai, Purple and Lemon
These window boxes are growing Swiss chard, bok choi and micro greens.
Below is a picture of my collard plants. They love this weather!
These are radicchio, which are beginning to form heads and will be ready for harvest in a few weeks.
I am growing pole beans up on an old ladder.
Here is a kohlrabi that is ready to eat. Both the leaves and bulb are delicious.
Well, that is what things looked like in March! Check back in April for another update.
