Here is my small garden box this morning. We have rosemary, lemon verbena, and cucumber in the top row. Oregano, basil, and zucchini are in the middle row. Strawberries and zucchini are in the bottom row.
I planted six zucchini seeds per hill/rectangle. I was very surprised that all of them came up. I was also surprised at how quickly they appeared. I guess the rain we’ve had lately has been the main cause. The seed package said to plant 6 and thin to 3 plants per hill. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do that. I offered half to a neighbor, so maybe she’ll take them. Otherwise, I might try to transplant some when they’re bigger.
This is my 4 x 4 ft garden box with 16 squares. I planted 4 squares with sweet potatoes (bottom row) and 12 squares with red potatoes. I was very surprised to see all of them come up. They’re looking very healthy and robust.
Here is a sweet potato plant (above).
This is a red potato plant. I had some potatoes with eyes growing out of them. I cut up the potatoes so that each piece had an eye on it. I buried one piece in each square and they all came up!
