My square foot garden is now almost two months old! I have seen so much growth lately, it is exciting!
I did make another trip to Home Depot this past week and picked up a few things. I wanted to mulch around my boxes so I got some to do that. I also wanted to have some compost on hand. I decided to replace the square that was for watermelons since nothing was growing. I bought a cantaloupe transplant. I also added some smaller carrots to my broccoli square. I was reading that some people have done that successfully. My broccoli plant isn’t growing very well so I figured if it fails, at least I will have carrots in that square.
The broccoli that just doesn’t seem to be growing.
My green beans…planted 5/10. They are growing fast!
My cantaloupe transplant
My cherry tomato plant is getting flowers. Yay!
I just love watching the carrots grow!
My first little pea blossom. I took this photo on 5/26 and this morning you can really see the pod forming. I can’t wait to eat our first peas!
This is the “winner” of the five tomato plants I grew from seed. One of them didn’t make it at all which is why I replaced it with a transplant. It already seems bigger than this bigger I took just a couple of days ago.
I bought this at Home Depot the other day too. Peppermint!
My first tomato transplant. I think it is up to 9 tomatoes now. We just need them to turn red!
My strawberry transplant I bought a few weeks ago. I planted four, two died and two are still growing. Speaking of strawberries, I planted a bunch of Alpine strawberries in a few different places. Three pots, my small garden bed and my extra box I made. So far two of the three pots and the small bed have tiny tiny strawberry leaves. We will see what we get there.
My flower pot. I am excited about this. I can’t wait until they bloom.
And this is my Mother’s Day gift…a little lime tree. I am very excited about it
