I will say that it’s a bit harder than I originally thought. Though doing the square foot gardening does virtually cut out the weeding, so that’s a plus. As you can see my squash is not doing great. I am still hoping that it will pull out of whatever funk it’s in. Any suggestions are welcome.
The tomato plants seem to be doing well, we’ve actually eaten 3-4 tomatoes off of the patio tomato, which I unwisely planted in the back, not knowing how tall the other plants would get. I just noticed this morning that one of the Big Boys has a tomato. Though I am a bit nervous about this, as someone commented how busy I’m going to be with all those plants. Live and learn I guess. I’m hoping to make Tomato Sauce, Enchilada Sauce, Pizza Sauce, Ketchup, BBQ Sauce so hopefully it’s a good thing. We shall see.
I also made two new additions. I planted peas, which are already growing quite nicely, as you can see. I put the screen behind the planter so they can grow up it, hopefully. I saw this online and thought it was a great idea for recycling something I already had
on hand. The other addition is a pot of herbs: Oregano, Parsley and Thyme, which have also sprouted right up, much to my delight. OOPS! I forgot to get a picture of this. I’ll have to show them next time.
Below are all the lovely strawberry plants. They are doing so well and I am looking forward to having quite a few strawberries in the very near future. It’s hard to keep the kids from picking them as they as excited about them as I am.
