This weekend I harvested garlic and carrots. I planted the garlic October 19, 2009, almost eight months ago! Garlic requires a lot of patience. Two varieties of garlic I got from the farmers market are Music and German White. This garlic had not been treated like most garlic you find in the grocery store. You plant one clove and magically they turn into full heads of garlic!

I planted the carrot seeds on April 4th, so they took about 3 months. Carrots come in all colors, not just orange. I planted several varieties, including yellow and red ones. The key thing about growing carrots is you have to thin them if you want them to grow properly. Thinning carrots requires that you snip off the plants that are too close together.

I munched on a few golden and red raspberries while I was harvesting. They were sweet and delicious. Raspberries are easy to grow.

Tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, peppers and watermelon are growing and look promising…
