The Square Foot Gardening Community
[Posted a few places; sorry if you see dupes.]
Well, I've been doing the garden in short bursts to keep from burning out, and I finally have the whole square-foot plot planted. I'll take pictures soon, but here's what I have planted:
|rainbow chard?||violet queen cauliflower||lettuce||rainbow bush beans
|rainbow chard?||violet queen cauliflower||violet queen cauliflower||rainbow bush beans
|red carrots||red carrots||momotaro tomatoes||fino verde basil
I only planted one tomato plant this year. I know tomatoes won't do all that well in my plot because of all the shade, but I can't seem to let go of the need to have fresh tomatoes. Maybe I'll plant some more in containers in stonebender's back yard (with his permission, of course) and see if they can handle only being tended once a week.
The "rainbow chard?" is because I planted some seeds that had spilled in my seed box, and I *think* they're chard, but I don't know for sure.
Oh, and since the last time I was there, there are suddenly leaves on the apple tree!
