It’s almost June and the garden is rolling again. The Super Sugar Snap peas we planted indoors in February are now producing:
Attaching the trellis netting to the salad table seems to have worked very well:
The view from the other side:
The Miner’s Lettuce is looking a little cooked, but the Arugula and Dill are happy in the back of the middle level:
Shortly after those photos were taken I draped some shade cloth over the salad table to try to discourage bolting. The lettuces on the top level are especially vulnerable on sunny days. (As an added bonus, the pea vines shade everything as well.)
One nice use for the Dill — Goat Cheese Coated With Minced Dill, Fire Roasted Tomato Flakes, and Sea Salt:
Moving to the backyard — we’re going to get a lot of rasperberries this year:
The beans we started in indoors in March(?) are coming along too. The Midori Giant Edamame seem to be more bug-resistant than the Maxibel Filet beans. The Edamame have the rounder leaves:
An overview of the non-pepper plants. The Minnesota Midget Melons (foreground, right) are limping along. We’ll get at least one survivor, but they all shocked due to either transplanting or the few nights we had in the low 40’s:
All of the squash/cucumbers/melons shocked to some degree this year, the melons just got the worst of it.
On the brighter side, the Oregon Springs are already bearing fruit:

That’s a great idea with your peas, and it looks like there’s lots of pods and blossoms on the plants. I really hope your melons make it.
Great looking peas! And that dill covered goat cheese sounds yummy for sure.
I love your salad bar! What a clever idea.
Your salad table is an excellent idea! And thank you for the idea of using dill on the cheese like that
I am a container gardener as well! Great pics!
Is it just my side of the street, or is your “baby lettuce” really tough this year?
Our lettuce has seemed ok, though the plants did seem to “bleed” more than usual when harvested. Maybe it’s the weird weather.
