I tried to start veggies from seed: What a disaster. Seeds germinated, but then bolted into little leggy things that died pathetically. Not to be deterred, I bought plants.
Today, I placed 6 Roma tomatoes. (I wanted San Marzano, but could not find them in plant form.) Other tomatoes are Brandywine, Big Boy, Tomatoberry (it's heart-shaped!), and husky cherry. I also planted three kinds of bell peppers, three assorted sweet peppers, and two hot peppers. Two eggplants, a sugarbaby bush, one acorn squash, a cucumber, and one summer squash ended today's planting along with a bunch of marigolds. Yesterday I planted two kinds of beans.
We have harvested three large bags of lettuce so far. The napa cabbage bolted before it was ready. My peas really did not grow. We have several purple cabbages growing, some cauliflower, three kinds of lettuce, collards, kohlrabi, radishes, assorted onions, shallots, and beets.
I still have room for my tiny corn grouping, some okra, carrots, and a pattypan squash plant.
The square foot gardening concept is working well for me. Especially since I have planted a bit of this and a bit of that. I've been having tons of fun with the garden and I really like the community garden as there is always someone around to inspire! Aside from the constant fight with crab-grass, it's not been too much for me.
I'll post a few pictures when Frank gets them off of the camera.
How is everyone's garden growing?
