Two – 8ft rows of carrots that were up about an inch last week are now gone!

Artichokes, they aren’t really a battle,  they are nice and healthy…but what was I thinking??? They are going to be huge plants…I don’t have room in the veggie beds….lol…maybe I can find someone willing to take some home  😉

  1. Too bad those slimmy things ruined so much. But sure looks like you are going to have a full freezer by the end of the season. Looking good Thelma

  2. The lima bean flower is gorgeous! And I really want to taste the Burnet Lettuce. Sounds great.
    Sorry about the slugs…bugs can be such a pain!

  3. So sorry about the slugs… 😦 But everything else looks great. As far as the corn salad plants…that’s what so many of my plants have looked like this spring…growing in slow motion or something. I was excited to see the strawberries. They look great!
