Busy Busy

Yes, we’ve been busy. Busy getting the beds finished, busy planting, busy weeding, busy selling shares….but it’s worth it. The garden is beautiful. Sure, we have more work to do, but it’s really shaping up. It’s nice to see the progress and to know that with all the work we’ve been doing, we only have to do it once…meaning building the beds.

Eric is working on the irrigation, making it permanent and I’ve been planting whatever looks interesting. Right now we have beets, carrots, basil, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, radish, green beans, cilantro, peppers, arugula, lettuce, tomatillos, chard and peas.

Our opening day was yesterday and we offered: lettuce, arugula, basil, herbs, chard and potatoes. More veggies will be available soon….just waiting for the plants to produce.

The carrots, onions, beets and garlic are taking a much longer time to bulb out, something we haven’t figured out why yet. Could be the wacky weather; hot, cold, hot and cold. The tomato plants have green tomatoes on the vines and that’s exciting; the peas just started to bloom; the Cozmic Purple carrots are growing larger; baby peppers are on some plants; corn, which is an experiment for us this year, is growing tall; Garden of Eden green beans are flourishing; so all seems well in the garden. (pics to come soon.)

We are also happy to announce that many of our friends started their own Square Foot Gardens this year. They are all doing well and growing great. Soon, I’ll post some of those pics too.

Speaking of pictures, I’ve been taking lots of them in the garden; just haven’t had the time to download and tweek them before posting….like I said earlier, we’ve been busy. 🙂
