The Square Foot Gardening Community
Copied from my personal LJ:
Volunteer sunflower (we think) is about four feet high.
I finally got impatient and picked the one carrot that actually grew -- it was too teeny to even eat. Oh, well. I'll have to tell the little boy who planted it that I messed up and picked it too soon.
The cauliflower is flowering -- it never made a head of cauliflower, but the flowers are beautiful.
There's a big, fat blossom on one of the zucchini plants, and tons of buds on all of them. I think zucchini will be successful.
There are 20 or so flowers on the tomato plant.
There are 20 or so strawberries, in varying stages of ripeness, and I finally harvested our first strawberry -- that is, the first one that didn't get eaten by slugs the second it started to turn red. It only took three years to get that one strawberry! :-)
Let's see, what else? Oh, yes, the bean plant looks like it's doing fine. I may plant a couple more hills of zucchini, though, if that's going to be the real thriver in this garden.
Oh! And the apple tree has hundreds of lovely apples on it. In a couple months, I'm thinking we'll have a lot of pie and strudel around here.
