    My onions failed until I made my gardens deeper, more like 10-12 inches of soil. This year they were still small, but I think that’s because I planted them 9 per square. This spring I’ll do 4 per square.

    How many cilantro plants did you do per square?

    Seeing your onions makes me want to try onions again. We tried them our first year of square-foot gardening, and for whatever reason, they never did much, just remained little more than sets. I should have done more research to see what we might have done wrong. Perhaps this is the year to try again.

    We had our first success with broccoli this year, though the heads weren’t as big as yours. I may have my wife look for the variety you mention this time. That may make a difference.

    If you love tomato sandwiches try growing this variety. Ace tomatoes have been around atleast 5o years. And to me they are better than any hybrid they have come up with. I live in California and we have grown these in the SanJoaquin Valley. I don’t know if they are availlable in your area or not but there is none better for texture, flavor or juiceiness.They produce tomatoes that one slice fills a slice of bread. They are also great for lsicing and frying green for green fried tomatoes. Ihave bought the plants and also grown from seed.They thrive in hot sunny conditions.

    Fall Garden??? I didn’t know that was a possibility. Will you be keeping us up to date so I could give it a try? I’ve no clue where to start. As you can tell I have very very limited knowledge and experience. I really appreciate your blog. I did manage to harvest some potatoes, peas, carrots, onions, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Mostly thanks to you!

    Great harvest!!!

    I planted the same variety of carrots. They are sooo good! I planted a whole 4×4 bed with them, but I’m wishing that I planted a whole 4×8′ bed so that I’d have lots to enjoy all winter.
