Here are some pics of the veg garden. Getting out of the beds next year. Too many ants and just prefer it in the ground better. Want to do it up nice.
When we got this place you wouldn't even know that these beds where even here. It was so badly grown in it wasn't even funny. A lot of work to clean it all up.

Square foot gardening pics

Hi Vdub girl.

I just started this neat garden called squarefoot gardening ( bought the book at chapters) so far so good and very little weeding this year. The 4 foot by 4 foot garden should feed the three of us all summer long if planted sucession way. For this year I will soon be planting cold plants for the fall harvest. This garden is really alot easier than one thinks. Everything doesn't come up at once and canning or preserving is a breeze with my Mehu-Liisa steamer - see opa.fi/tuotteet/liisasteel/liisasteel_300.htm#

or Canadian orders here: www-podunk.com/
This is a gardeners dream when preserving and makes life easier - imho

I will add additional pics tomorrow as the latest ones are from July 6th.
Regards.

Well, I would post pictures ot the garden, but I doubt that anyone is very interested in seeing a large expanse of opaque plastic. Or a sweaty, bedraggled looking hick fighting with a tiller. So I will wait till I have something growing before I post pictures.

Enjoying everyone else's, though. The square foot garden is looking enviable!

July 22nd pics of sq ft garden

We actually pulled the near left potatoe mound, removed 14 and replanted. It took! back into production again.
38 corn stalks, 6 potatoe mounds, and the Sq Ft garden with climbers at the back, cucs, zuks, cantalope, won't plant the broc in there again, and the corn stalk was a experiment. This is the first time, a map layout and better planning for next year.
regards

I don't have an photos of my garden, but I use the square foot garderning method. I really like the fact you plant for what you need as you go along so you don't waste so much food!!! :wink:
My husband took over the main veggie garden this year and I just have a small section elswhere for greens and herbs. His carrot are a foot tall and still need to be thinned. He has more beets than he knows what to do with! :shock: I "encouraged" him to read my Square Foot Garderning book last winter, think I will INSIST he read it this next winter when he has visions of garderning dancing in his head! :lol:

PS the author of the book is Mel Bartholomew
