Veggie update - the cutworm garden

It's an exciting time in the veggie garden. Seedlings are collared against cutworm attack, so far very effective.

Collared beans - Cherokee Trail of Tears - and cucumbers - long asian type and lemon

Greens are out of control and I love it!

I think these are Arrow peas.

And check out this seeded coldframe. I've already harvested, turnips and snow peas, carrots and beet thinnings.

Vegetables seeded under my spaceship coldframe sometime in February if I remember correctly.

I even have my first pepper forming (my first cherry tomato was attacked by cutworms... I don't want to talk about it... it still hurts).

Sorry about the sideways photo! Mini pepper.

Hallo again!

Here is a link to an Ottawa guerilla gardening community.

Feel free to expand your blog outwards, if you like. I'll be blogging myself about the guerilla gardening I'll be getting up to.

It looks like you will have a wonderful crop of veggies.

Wow this is great!
I am in awe of the gardener that goes to all the trouble to grow their own veggies.
I have great respect for the work I know you put into it

The future looks bright in that wonderful veggie garden of yours.
Sorry about the cutworms.

It is quite something to see the size of your veggies. Those cutworms are so irritating ... between those and the tent caterpillars, it'll be surprising if there is any green left in the garden.

The savoy cabbage is really pretty ...
