My cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower have been huge disappointments this year. Between the 3, I have only 9 plants currently doing their brassica thing in my garden. I was expecting 8-10 plants of each, so there are some pretty big holes that needed to be filled. Over the long weekend I decided to fill those holes with what I knew would grow–more lettuce, beets, and chard. I’m going to give the brassicas another try this fall, but for now go with what works, right?
In other news, I got my trellises built and set up this weekend! I’m very pleased with how they turned out, even if the supplies were ridiculously more expensive than I expected.
At this point in the season the updates will start tapering off until I start harvesting anything beyond lettuce. I’m relieved that everything is in and have extremely high hopes for the garden this year!
