Earlier this Spring I expanded the garden. I cut down the mulberry tree. It was nice shade, but the berries were making a huge mess and were so high you could not reach them to pick them if they tasted good, which they didn't. This was definitely a work in progress picture.
The biggest difference this year is I am growing a few new things. Silver Queen corn is one of them and it is starting to show tassels and silk. I planted 1 stalk per square foot in a 5 x 10 bed. I should get 50 to 100 ears I hope.
I am also growing 2 squash vine borer resistant squash types - Tatume and Seminole. Here are some of the latest pictures. This is the Tatume squash vines growing like mad.
This is one of the first Tatume squash I produced. It taste like zucchini and is excellent sliced and grilled with a little olive oil and seasoning. This one is a little larger than a baseball, which is about the right size I think for eating.
Here are my Seminole squash vines. These actually form small pumpkins. The leaves add a nice touch to the landscape.

First canning yielded 18 quarts. Second Canning yielded 14.
Here is my onion harvest. I grew this in 72 sq. ft of space. These are 10-15, Contessa and Southern Red onions. There is also some garlic in there.
I am also growing pole lima beans. These are Big Mama and Burpee's Best. I made trellises out of bamboo instead of my usual electrical conduit because I like the more natural look of it.
