Square Foot Gardening

Garden boxes set and leveled, waiting for “Mel’s Mix”.

Joshua loves playing in the garden.

Plants set out.

Growing bigger and stronger.

Pumpkins on the left end, Potatoes in the center, double deep and Peas and Tomatoes in the right end.

All our plants are growing like crazy, Peppers (Hot and Sweet), Onions, Cabbage, Lettuce, Beets, Peas, Cucumbers, Broccoli, Kale, Spinach, Radishes, Kohlrabi, Carrots, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Sage, Basil, Spearmint, Peppermint and Flowers.

The compost bins in the back are almost finished, one more door and some paint and trim.  We will put sod around the boxes in a few weeks to cover up the clay soil and weeds there now.

Eva’s Banty chickens, Charlie used to chase them out of his corral, he now tolerates them pretty well.

Trying to give an Independence Day flair to the outside of the house, the siding needs to be replaced (with Adobe Brick this summer hopefully), the porch rebuilt and the satelite dish must come down!
