We planted a small garden this year. I’ve blogged about our square foot gardening planning here already. We had some problems due to a long, wet spring and bugs (or something) eating our sprouts. We had to re-plant a few things as well as transplant some stuff, but things eventually took off. Pictured here is an example of some of the different vegetables we’ve grown.
We had a great corn harvest and loved eating that. Our tomatoes are just now turning red. Our peppers, not pictured here, are struggling but look to be making a comeback. Our cantaloupes are slowly ripening. We had a lot of lettuce (butter crunch variety) but it never really tasted like, well, what I envision butter crunch tasting like. They were bitter. The cucumbers are going crazy and we can’t keep up. We let our cilantro go to seed before harvesting. Oops.
Overall, a fun experiment and one we’ll repeat next spring.
