The Veggies are Growing!

Things are coming along in the SFG.  The okra is blooming.  The tomatoes are blooming.  The squash is blooming.  DH planted cucumber seeds in some of the open squares and they’re already blooming.  I think we’re going to like this way of gardening.

Don was pretty resistent to start with but he’s starting to get excited too.   I know it doesn’t look like much in this picture but things are really growing.


Here’s what the tomatoes look like:

Take a look at the okra.  Sorry the photo is so blurred.

We planted some asparagus years ago and we’ve never really paid much attention to it but this year I’ve picked a few stalks here and there and enjoyed them on salads.  I want to dig them up and divide them for moving to Square Foot Gardening.  Here are 2 pics of the asparagus.

It’s fun to see how fast the veggies are growing.  And it will be even more fun to eat them!  So….what’s growing in your garden?

    Shouldn’t you be on about your 3rd growing season for the summer by now?? LOL I’ve got tomatoes (I can tell by the shapes one is yellow pear and the other roma but lost the tags for the others which are just “normal” shaped so don’t know what they are) and bell peppers growing. About a dozen little peppers hanging on the plants so far and the plants themselves are whoppers — really tall. Now if the birds and bugs leave them along I may have a crop.

    We do have a really long growing season here. In fact, we can plant something each month. We’re excited about our SFG. Our big garden is just too much to handle and it’s been too hot/dry this year. We have a baby squash on one of the plants. I’ll post a picture of it later. Good luck with your peppers and maters. 🙂
