2017 was an interesting year for the BHaven Vegtable Garden.
Lettuces - in general, the lettuces did real well. Planted as seedlings.
Kale - grew well, but when the weather turned warm, the catepillers wiped them out. Planted as seedlings.
Onions - did very well. Planted as seedlings.
Leeks - did very well. Planted as seedlings.
Celery - did very well. Planted as seedlings.
Carrots - did very well. Started as seeds and then transplanted.
Beets - grew like crazy. Started as seeds and then transplanted
Broccoli - grew very well, but the catepillars wiped out the fruit.
Cauliflower - grew very well, but the catepillars wiped out the fruit.
Bergamot - did ok but died back in the winter. This is supposed to be a perennial - so it should come back.
Garlic - did poorly. Pretty much did not come up at all.
Asparagus - planted three asparagus beds. They seem to be doing well. I will let them get established for a year or two before harvesting.
I continuosly add raw, used goat bedding - pine shavings. Apparently it is not too hot. It does a great job of holding in the water and it breaks down into a rich composte. There is now at least a foot of composte in the vegatable garden.
