Here are some pictures of my garden this week. You can see the tremendous growth that has occurred, especially with the potatoes, over the last few weeks. We’ve had quite a bit of rain recently, which is a change from the months of no rain.
On the left, you have red potatoes, and on the right column, you have sweet potatoes. I added fertilized soil for dry areas to the box, so I think it’s doing a good job with the plants.
The above two pics are opposing views of the same box. Last week, I moved a few things around to make room for all of the zucchini that came up from seed. I now have 12 zucchini plants. My cucumber plants have several flowers on each, so I hope to see some cucumbers soon. I had one tiny strawberry so far, but there are no signs of any others, yet.
Here’s a view of the boxes with their cages. The cages do a wonderful job of keeping cats, birds, and squirrels out. You can find directions for making the boxes and cages at the Square Foot Gardening site.
