2011 has been a splendid year for our little garden.

This year we planted garlic (fall 2010), carrots, spinach, onions, sugar snap peas, lettuce, tomatoes, basil and potatoes. Everything is growing very well!

Garlic! A new experience for me. Seems to be a fairly straightforward plant to grow.

  I have two bunches about this size. Pretty good!

The picture on the top is today, the one on the bottom is may,18th 2011. The transplants went in small, and now you can hardly distinguish one from the other. You also can barely make out the bamboo trellis that the sugar snaps are climbing. I always think that I'm giving my tomato plants too much room, but as you can see, they get big!

Basil from seed.

Good old fun.
I'm addicted to these sugar snaps!
Some of the onions are plumping up, but others are not, although all the tops look the same?
Sometime in June.
June. I used the peas to partially shade the lettuce.

We have taken two pesto meals from these guys now! They are about 5 times as big as this pic from June.
I initially thought this was asparagus, but no, its mint. A delicious weed. 
Just when everything was starting to sprout. Sugar snaps with peas in the middle.

Garlic and radishes were the earliest green in the garden.
Yum! Mint!
Raspberry bush and blueberries too!
