2009 gardening year in review, part 1

2009 was my first year growing in raised beds and by all measures it was a great year, every bed was a great producer. there were a few varieties of specific vegetables that didnt pan out as expected. but lets start off with the first vegetable that produced in my garden for 2009.


this early season photo shows a mix of radishes that i planted this year. i obtained my radish seeds from seed savers exchange. varieties include: early scarlet globe, french breakfast and plum purple.

as usual, i over planted and had an abundant - way more than i will ever eat - production. i figure worst case, the unwanted radishes get punted to the compost bin. over planting, excess production was a hallmark of my garden this year.
