May 2016 Harvest Totals

We’ve been really busy this spring with work, so we had to hire someone to weed our raised beds which allowed me to plant our spring garden.  It is now the end of May and we’ve pulled our sugar snap peas and most of our lettuces.  We’ve planted cucumbers, and harvested the carrots.  The corn is a couple of feet high and we’re ready to plant tomatoes, zucchini, and spaghetti squash.

One of the problems with bay area weather is that it is the ideal weather for powdery mildew. I planted two kinds of sugar snap peas – one was the regular sugar snap, and the other was super sugar snap.  The Super sugar snap was supposed to have been more resistant to powdery mildew, but we found not only was it not resistant, the mildew seems to deform peas on the super sugar snap.
