Blueberry, broccoli, squash harvest & other garden happenings

Blueberry harvest & broccoli, squash from the garden.
Had the squash and broccoli fried then pureed as a soup with potatoes and leeks.

Not sure what this is but I ate it like it was zucchini.
Cooked it fried with rice.
Grapes to make some wine or jam, not sure yet

Huge variety of fruit in the food forest growing

Pears
There's many varieties of fruits growing and vegetables in the garden at this time. Pears, peaches, nectarines, plums, grapes, aronia berries, blueberries, and so much more are quickly growing. The blueberries are already turning blue and I have been putting up fencing to keep the birds out. The grapes are getting plump as well, so I'll also need to put up additional fencing around them to keep birds out.

The vegetable gardens are in full swing. There's broccoli, cauliflower, peas, potatoes, onions, lettuce, spinach, cilantro, radishes, carrots, beans, squash, and melons all densely growing together. This type of gardening is called polyculture and has many benefits, such as companion planting, pest prevention, and artistic aesthetic.

While this garden flourishes, my other gardens are steadily progressing but need much more attention. My other garden has lettuce and other greens, beans, and potatoes growing but I need to work over there a bit more, and then I'll highlight those gardens with some pictures to come.

Have a great garden week, everyone!
