Square Foot Garden: Eleven Weeks

Are you ready for some square foot gardening!!

I am! Our garden is awesome...awesome to the max! (Hailey is from the 80s)


The Good:
Potato
Tomato
Mint
Corn
Purple Beans
Zinna (flower)

So-So:
Strawberry
Green Beans (good growth but no green beans)
Cucumber (growth but no cukes)

Not So Good:
Carrots (almost all gone)
Peppers (not growing)
Leaf Lettuce (gone)
Watermelon (gone)
Onion (not that much growth)


 
Corn really shot up this week













This was kind of a test harvest since we never grew potatoes before, decided to try waiting a bit more to see if we could get them to grow a little bigger

We continue to experience lots of hot weather. One potato is trying to escape a little too early.

Ron covered up the potato with our compost mixture.

Hailey really wanted a taste.

The beautiful zinna!

One tired wiener!

We've never tried growing potato; I wonder if we could? We like growing peppers - bell, jalapeno, etc.

Miniature Potatoes! A new trend! :)

Gardening is hard work for dogs. It takes lots of disipline not to dig in the wrong places.

Mom and Dad have had asparagus and lettuce so far from the garden. The onions are struggling. We think some creature is getting to them.

The potatoes are looking good, we just started harvesting ours. They taste so nice when you grow them yourself, and the satisfaction of knowing you home grew them is so cool.

It has been fun seeing your garden grow, and seeing what worked well and not so well. That is how we were with our veggies, I think part of the fun of it all is seeing what works best with your soil etc. :)

ps - loved the videos!

This is soooo cool! I hope you pups get to eat those potatoes.

Is that a rattlesnake in the background of your video or what? haha

I love the little potatoes. HOW COOL! I'm always so jealous of anyone who can grow anything.

I still LOVE seeing Hailey in each of the photos and video of the garden. She is ready to try anything. Sweet girl. :)
