My Garden Update

It is finally time for a GARDEN UPDATE.
Everything seems to be growing beautifully - we have been harvesting lettuce regularly and I have given away bundles.
We finally started harvesting our Swiss Chard and it is a fantastic crop. This is one crop that I plan to grow every year!
We picked our first zucchini yesterday. They are gorgeous and they taste delicious.




The cucumbers are coming along and we are expecting several days of rain so Im sure Ill be harvesting them very soon.


Overall it is the best garden we have ever had...I sure love square foot gardening!

Your garden is the size of the one tended by our local food co-op :-). You certainly won't go hungry this summer. You've done a wonderful job.
