I think I'm in love with my garden.
I was so scared that things wouldn't grow as good as they used to before swapping my soil. I never did much besides weed and occasionally spread some composted manure in my old garden and it miraculously grew huge quantities of food. I feel like it was magic- totally not due to any gardening skill or training on my part. So I was nervous that this new soil, while not contaminated, might not be very good or would require a lot of time and attention. But now I'm not too worried. Here's a tour of my main garden:
The cucumbers are going crazy. I cleaned out the last of the radishes from the cuke bed, so now they have a little more room. I pulled in 2 pounds of pickling cucumbers today. On the right there are peas, a purple cayenne chile plant, tomatillos and then lots of tomatoes.
Here's a view of the green bean bed on the left and the basil/cuke bed on the right. This year I planted some purple, wax, and green beans- This is my first picking of them because they got such a late start. I got nearly three pounds of beans today.
In the back of this view you can see the other tomato bed and one of the broccoli/cauliflower beds. The mulberry tree is in the far back.
