    It’s the most effective way to allow plants to grow from both sides.

    Hi, It looks like you put your trellis in the middle of your sq., r u suppose to do that?Do u plant your peas on both sides of your trellis?

    I had a similar issue. Mine did not seem to be thriving, but they have since started flourishing.

    I’m in central Utah, and my tomatoes are thriving suprisingly. My daughter counted 15 little green tomatoes. I have baby bell peppers too, but the broccoli…well it shriveled. My potatoes aren’t very happy either. I guess you just never know. Your garden looks great though. I love your site!

    “Overrun with tomatoes” sounds good right now. It’s my first year doing a SFG (well, really any garden at all–previously I’ve always just grown a few plants here and there) and I’m learning a lot, even though I’m not getting much harvest. Temps here in OK are well into the 100s already, and they tell me that’s too hot for most tomatoes to set fruit. Tomatoes is what we were most looking forward to! Guess we’ll just have to keep the plants going until fall when the temps drop again 🙁

    Nice looking garden! I’m in Utah too, and my pepper plants haven’t done a thing, either. My potatoes are incredibly lush and seem to grow several inches daily.

    My lettuce looks just like that, too. It was labeled “iceberg” so I’m not sure if I’m supposed to wait for it to grow a little head or just eat the leaves.

    You’re inspiring me to give broccoli a try next year.

    My peppers look remarkably like yours. Each yellowing leaf finally fell off. I was sure they weren’t going to make it – and I couldn’t figure out was it the heat or lack of heat or the watering. But all of a sudden, I have a new flush of little leaves on the bottoms of the pepper plants. It’s like they are restarting themselves. So, you may not have to rebuy.

    And as far as the tomatoes go – let’s just say that my 4th of July tomatoes won’t be producing by the 4th of July. :o)

    Love your blog!
