Last weekend, I built a second square-foot gardening box (Click for details: Post 1 and Post 2). I filled it with a variety of veggie transplants and seeds. The seeds haven’t had a chance to come up yet, although I spied the beginnings of potato plants beginning to push up the soil in their effort to show themselves.
Here is a pic of the two garden boxes with critter cages:
My smaller garden box has been going a bit longer. I’ll be pulling lettuce from it this week.
(Above) On the left, we have a variety of leaf lettuce plants, most of which are romaine. There is a spinach plant or two hiding near the top, but there’s not much to them right now. In the middle, we have strawberries, green onions, and onions. On the right, we have potato plants, all of which came from one potato that I sliced into thirds. This garden box is 36 in x 30 in and is divided into 9 parts.
(Above) This is my larger garden box. It is 4 ft x 4 ft and is divided into 16 squares. On the left, we have zucchini and potato seeds (not showing yet), as well as marigolds. In the middle two columns, we have cucumber seeds (top, not showing), bell peppers and a tomato plant, and carrot seeds (one square planted, but not up yet, I’ll plant the other square in a week or two). On the right, we have another cucumber seed (not showing yet), squash, and marigolds.
