Very nice garden! Thank you for sharing the pictures.

I am always so jealous of people who talk about getting tomatoes in May or June - it will be months before we see a fresh tomato here in the PNW!

Besides my annual garden of veggies and stuff, my goal is to have a pretty substantial perennial supply of fruit and veggies fully established eventually, and to reach that goal, I've been planting gifts that keep on giving - rhubarb, blueberries, currants, raspberries, strawberries, horseradish, herbs (had fresh chives on our baked potatoes this evening).

I should probably harvest some rhubarb tomorrow - get it into the freezer for future rhubarb cobblers (yum!) and maybe some wine this year.

Mulch! You need to add a few inches of bark mulch to protect the soil, break down, and add nutrients to your garden plants. Add a layer of compost w/ manure first if you are able. When it rains/when you water it will make a nice nutrient tea for your plants as well as allowing the soil to aeriate more naturally and attract more worms below. You should find you'll need to water less. The end result, you'll get deeper roots and larger, more productive plants with vegetables containing a higher water content (a.k.a juicy!).
