    If you go to my posts you can see pictures, and garden plans. My backyard faces south, and my beds are on the east and west fences. Some get morning light, others afternoon light. During the summer the sun is so high in the sky, the fences hardly shade the gardens at all. There are no trees or other things to cast shade.

    I’d like to know which way is South for your beds, Emily, sun hours, etc.

    I am in zone 6a or 6b, I think.

    Everything looks great!! What zone do you live in? This is my first year with SFG and my tomatoes are doing good so far. Only have one bell pepper (transplant), not sure if I will get more =(. I might add another box next year. I am in zone 5, so not sure what I should be expecting to be harvested, my onion seed packet say 110 days, that would be in Sept.

    what variety of green bean do you plant?

  7. Me says:

    Those peppers in the center of the picture of bells and jalapenos are called Serrano chiles and yes, they are hot. Make sure you wear gloves when handling and prepping – you’ll never forget it if you don’t, and then touch your eyes!

    Congratulations – very nice work.

    Add a few fruit trees plus a lavender bush and all will be well

    I’ve harvested some pink brandywine seeds and some cherokee purple seeds (both are heirloom tomatoes and my 2 favorites) and I will have plenty of extras. The pink brandywine are so sweet without the sour bitter after taste most tomatoes have. I know the seeds grow true to form because I harvested the seeds last from last year’s plants and they grew into 8 feet tall plants – I need a new trellis. Want some seeds?

    Your garden is glorious!!! I can’t say I’ve had much luck with my SFG, but I’m not giving up! Enjoy your harvest!
