How Does Your Garden Grow Garden Update June 2020

I snapped a few shots of my garden last week and I’m sure it’s gone ahead and kept on growing, but here’s how it looked then. How is your garden growing?

And now a peek at mine…


The cabbage is doing very well, heading up earlier than usual. I read an article saying cabbage really loved being next to rhubarb and it certainly seems like it!


The broccoli isn’t as big as I’d like, but it’s not too bad. I tried adding more nutrients today to see if I could make it get bigger.

Purple beans

The bush beans are just getting started, while the pole beans along the fence are struggling for space since the “volunteer” nasturtiums took over due to having to plant the beans about three times!

Walla Walla sweet onions

Looks like a banner year for onions. Wish I would have been able to snag some storage onions but I didn’t want to buy a bag with 100 bulbs (I don’t have the space) and I couldn’t find anyone to split with me.

Crazy snow peas

The peas are just way too tall. I don’t know why they do that. My sister’s peas also reached for the sky. But they are putting out some fine pea pods which we’ve been enjoying in stir-fry.

And then of course there are the berries. Yum!

The basil is finally starting to look good after a little cold damage and the tomato and pepper plants are looking fine. The cucumbers also look promising, but once more the melons don’t seem to be growing well. I’ll do another update later one.

How about you? What are your successes or disappointments? Please share in the comments below.
