Garden 2011: Recap #2



Center:  Jo removed the cloches from our broccoli, cauliflower and Chinese cabbage.  She then covered the bed with a wire tunnel to keep rabbits from eating their fill.

Clockwise:

1. Cauliflower (4/17/11)
2. Cherry Bell radishes (4/16/11)
3.  Comfrey does well in the spring, but suffers in our hot, dry summer.  (4/16/11)
4. Partially mulched broccoli. (4/17/11)
5. Lettuce (4/16/11)
6. Chinese cabbage. (4/17/11)

Your garden looks so promising sitting there all nice and neat. What do you do with your comfrey? I know it is an herb but I don't know what to do with it. I actually have it in my garden as an ornamental. It is in partial shade so it does well all summer. I like it because when it starts to bloom it blooms until frost. The bees love it.

oh that wire tunnel is great - and, i'm sure, quite the necessity! :)

Lisa: We don't actually do anything with the comfrey. I reckon we also just grow it as an ornamental. It is pretty (until ours dies back in the heat) and we enjoy its blooms and the pollinators they attract.

I have been visiting your site for a few weeks now, very nice garden, pictures and site :-)

I have started with my backyard garden this year. Whats the purpose of the cloches? What stage do you put them on?
