Though I’ve always gardened intensively, mostly in containers and grow bags, 2010 is my first year growing in square foot gardening beds. You can view one of my earlier updates here.
The pictures below were taken late in the afternoon of August 4th, 2010.
Wind from storms has blown down the popcorn, so it’s not standing as tall as it might. The okra may have been planted too late to come to full maturity before it cools off. These plants have all thrived in the hot, tropical jungle-like weather we’ve had much of the summer.
The Hurricane beans have produced nearly all summer, with the exception of during the hottest weather in July. The provider beans were planted in mid July, replacing King of the Early beans, which had run their course and didn’t do as well as hoped. Also, Sunday I planted a dozen Dragon Tongue seeds back among the tomatoes.
If you follow Mel Bartholomew’s instructions in All New Square Foot Gardening, you’ll produce more in a small space than you might imagine.
