Square Foot Garden: Five Weeks

Lots of growth this week! Potato plants are out of control, crazy growth.

Our tomato plant is HUGE. So far, only one tomato.  Really thriving but I wish there were more tomatoes to go along with the growth.

I remember when this corn was shorter.


We lost our watermelon plant. Bugs ate right through it.  On a side note, the bugs seem to be under control, in this particular case, instead of the leaves they are into the stalk which killed it.  Overall the bug count is way down tho, thats either due to the colder weather, environment conditions (prey or natural forces, maybe we were in a swarm period...like May flies etc)  Or maybe they just got tired of messing with the chili/garlic spray.

Here we have our cucumber plant. 

Carrots.

Green beans.  They've grown all the way to the top of the fencing and are looking for some additional support so maybe we'll set up some netting or something next week.

HOW much longer do we have to wait for something to eat from this garden? AND we don't appreciate the fence at all.

Cover me Addie! I just need a taste of this mint.  So far it's the only thing we've eaten ( in Mojito form)

you will increase your tomato yield if you pinch off the suckers. I saw a few of them growing quite big in a couple of the close up pictures. http://www.finegardening.com/how-to/articles/pruning-tomatoes.aspx that article might help explain it.

We love the fact that you girls are looking towards the top of the fence. Can you make it over the top to sneak inside?! What a bummer about your watermelon!

Love ya lots

Ohhh.. you girls have green fingers (or should it be paws??) You have all our mom's fav vegetables growing right there in your garden!! Sorry that the watermelon didn't make it though.. it'd have been really nice and refreshing to have it in summer.

Love you heaps!! xoxo

Dang! Those plants grow faster than puppies! They look good. Sorry about the watermelon plant though. I guess you could re-plant those seeds.
