Yesterday I posted an overview of vegetables planted in the square foot gardens. Below is an overview of plants in the traditional in-ground garden.
The photo below is the west side of the garden looking north. The solar mulch is used to help warm the soil and keep the weeds down:
At the very top on the outside edge of the garden are 4 Self Watering Containers (SWC) with 2 Roma Tomatoes each:
The back trellis has a double row of Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans. They were seeded last week and I swear they sprouted and unfurled before my very eyes:
The second trellis has a double row of Purple Trionfo Violetto Pole Beans that have also begun to sprout and unfurl their leaves:
3 of the Early Girl Tomato plants had formed buds just before planting. I pinched most of these off as I want the plants to focus on root development not fruit development right now. But I left he buds on one plant and they bloomed the day after planting in the garden:
I am out of garden soil, so I may raid the compost bin of shredded leaves from last fall to do one more hilling.
The wind has been whipping for the past several days, some of the tomato and melon leaves are showing signs of some light damage. I think they will be ok, but I can't help but worry about them. It rained yesterday as predicted and I could tell that the garden benefited greatly.
