Square Foot Gardening Update

April / May timeframe

June timeframe

 

It’s been a fun spring/summer learning about square foot gardening.  Things are really taking off now with the consistent warmer weather.  We have had plenty of lettuce from the garden, a few strawberries and some basil.

We are excited about the upcoming harvest from our tomato plants, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, onions and garlic.  I have taken notice of things to consider for next year.  One thing – the cabbage plants get huge for a one square foot area and tend to grow over the carrot tops at this point.  Thus, as you may see in the bottom pic, there is a cabbage plant transplanted to create more room and sun for the carrots.

I joke with friends who ask about the garden regarding the fact that the cabbage/broccoli plants were purchased from Conrad farms for about a $1.00/each as small sproutlings.  If I’m not mistaken, you can go to your local produce department and purchase a head of broccoli or cabbage for about a $1.00.  However, it is not nearly as fun and usually not organic.

It’s been a joy to watch our girls take ownership and learn from watching things sprout from the garden.  I’ll try to see if I can capture some pics of the some of the produce as it becomes ready.
