I thought it was time for an update, considering the potager is flourishing!
Indigo Acres: Potager in July
We have been spending much time harvesting leaf lettuces and head lettuces. We love growing greens! Pictured below are some of our favorites: mesclun blend, four seasons, romaine,black seeded simpson.
This time of year, we harvest a large amount of pea pods and kale, as well.
We love zucchini! What I should say is we love zucchini bread! We grow 4 different varieties. One of my favorites is our “Zucchini Balls”!
Who doesn’t love onions! We grow large red, white and yellow onions and well as green bunching onions and leeks.
Adding flowers throughout the potager becomes a wonderful food source for the bees!
This spring, a hard late frost was damaging to our apple, cherry, peach, asian pear, plum and apricot blossoms. We were fortunate that our grapes and berries were spared.
