Garden Update: barely growing

 This week's garden is growing ever so slowly.  But still, there's green and life out there which is a vast improvement over a month ago.  No we're starting to watch the weather for signs that the last frost is behind us, although it does seem a little early to be tempting fate and planting those warm weather crops up here in NH. 

Each Friday I share photos from our garden with an update about what we're doing, what's growing, and what we're eating.  I invite you to come play along, I love seeing what others are trying.  You can join the fun in 2 ways:

  • If you blog, I welcome you to write a post or share a post from that week about what's growing in your garden 
  • If you aren't a blogger, I invite you to join my gardening flickr group and share photos of your garden from this week
  • And last - if you don't want to blog or share photos, just follow along and check out all the links and photos and maybe share a comment with your own gardening experience from the week


  1. Hard to believe y'all are just getting started when our garden is just about pooped out until fall. I know it's kinda weird to join your link up with a link up, but that's where I post our garden updates.
    Wishing you sunny skies to get that garden kick-started!

  2. I too live in NH (seacoast) and my garden is going slow as well. Our lettuce, peas and beets just germinated. I don't start seedlings, I sow right in the ground, so it takes a bit longer to grow for me, but it's all good. Soon the garden will overflowing with veggies.

  3. This post just made me feel 10x better! I live in MA, started my seeds indoors in March/April, and now have them outside in containers for the last 1-2 weeks. When I read other farming/homesteading blogs, many are located in hot regions where their plants are already several feet tall and producing fruits. When I look at my little seedlings, I wonder if I did something wrong -- but seeing this makes me think it's more the cold region we live in! Here's hoping for a great summer/fall harvest!
