Do you recall when I posted on June 6th that I was trying Square Foot Gardening? Well let me give you an update. Things look a bit different than before.
I have really enjoyed this type of gardening and plan to do it again once we get onto the farm. There are virtually no weeds with this type of gardening. I am so impressed with how easy it is.
The tomato plants are huge and I have a lot of tomatoes forming already.
My herb garden is growing much slower. You can see my spinach in the front is small but that is because I have been cutting spinach off of the plant daily and making new recipes. I will be share them soon.
I ended up with one basil plant out of the many seeds that I had planted. To be honest I really only need one but I would have liked to have grown 2. I have 3 cilantro plants and wish that they would grow quicker. The oregano is growing nicely. I only had one eggplant come up from the seeds that I planted. I planted about 20 pepper seeds and I believe that I have one pepper plant but am not sure it is a pepper plant. Time will tell if peppers actually form on it. haha
When I had empty squares in my garden I transplanted some of the many zucchini, yellow squash and butternut squash into those squares. Squashes tend to grow for even the worst gardeners. I will be having a huge surplus of those soon and will need to get a food dryer to harvest them. I love to make zucchini muffins and will find many uses for them over the winter.
Well this is my little garden at my little house. I can’t wait to get on my farm. SIGH:::
