Mommy Gardner, how does your garden grow?
So it has been about a month and a half since I started seeds indoors to plant my vegetable garden. I ordered all my seeds from the Seed Savers Exchange. Here they are:
Yep, that's 7 types of tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, snap peas, beans, carrots, beets, parsley, and lettuce. I purchased my square foot garden frame from SquareFootGarden.com and read up on the internet about how to plant the squares of the square foot garden. The day after I put in my seedlings we had torrential downpours in Southern California and little sun so a few of my plants did make it, probably due to root or stem rot. So I quickly started some new seedlings to fill in the gap and they are doing well now. Here is how the garden looks about 1 month out. Peas and beans are doing great. Beets and carrots look good. Cukes are behind because I has to restart the seedlings and lettuces are also behind because i had to restart them as well. Most of the tomato plants look pretty healthy and the watermelons look good though they grow pretty slowly. Parsley is being grown in a pot not shown here. Can't wait for the summer to harvest all my crops!
