Well, we are trying Square Foot Gardening. Have you heard of it?
It is different from regular gardening. I’m not even going to try to explain it. There are tons of websites that can give you good counsel.
So, far this is what we have…
Tomatoes are planted in every square foot. The boxes are 4 feet by 8 feet. At the other end are squash, zucchini plants and okra. The bamboo poles are going to help hold up the vines… This is our next bed. Green Bell Peppers, Yellow Bell Peppers, Red Bell Peppers, Jalapeños and Tomatoes. This is the corn box. Three rows of corn planted East to West. We read somewhere this is the best way to plant them…not sure the reason. Notice the big footprint. I think it may have been Big Foot. He must have been looking for some pop-corn. Hmm…. Our tomatoes, more green peppers, radishes and cucumbers. So yummy! This is the squash…so pretty! I think this was a bell pepper or a tomatillo. I can’t remember…but can’t wait for it to produce fruit!
We planted spineless okra. It is funny to me that some people I know, have never had it! Oh my – shut my mouth – I just love good fried okra! Next time you are at Cracker Barrel – order some! If you don’t like it…they will give you something else! (I’ve done that with Turnip Greens many times…I just don’t like Turnip Greens – I like Mustard Greens…big difference!!!)
Are you gardening? Tell me what grows best for you!
(Weeds don’t count!)
Blessings to you! You are loved!
