How does your (square foot) garden grow?
I have some gardening friends, and I am always tempted to begin conversations with the nursery rhyme. I resist. . . but just barely.
My garden is growing–despite the crazy weather throughout the month of April. This is the same garden bed that was covered in nine inches of snow just three weeks ago!
On top are peas. Several are about 2″ tall. When I saw that some of the seeds didn’t germinate, I replanted those spots.
Next is my row of carrots. You can’t see it in this picture, but they have JUST started coming up. Bottom left is onions, and bottom right is spinach.
Check out my garlic! I planted these last fall, and they’ve gotten huge.
I’ve always struggled with root and bulb veggies (onions, garlic, carrots, beets), so I’m hoping this proves to be a good omen for this year’s crops!
Finally, here we have broccoli (top 4 plants), cabbage (next 2) and parsley (bottom 2 plants). These were transplanted during week -3, and this photo was taken one week later (week -2).
