Halfway Garden

The backyard garden halfway through the season.
Here's what it looked like just after planting. I put the grass clippings down so no seeds would wash away. I also used Preen to help control the weeds. That and grass mulch worked pretty well. till and mulch backyard garden, prepare to plant till and fertilize rows in garden

The beans, cucumber and potatoes grew the fastest.

Again this year, the only thing i really care whether or not it grows, is corn. I planted three rows and it's doing ok. The shade from the tree isn't helping. Then i also found out afterwords that i should have soaked the seeds for 24 hours the day before to help it start germinating.

I also planted some corn along the side of the garage. A couple of them are doing great.

The bamboo shoots came up earlier in the year. Now all of the their energy is going into their roots, which are really starting to spread.
