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.
