Here's what's growing now:
CABBAGE - I planted late and question whether they will grow to completion before it gets too hot for them - I'm actually quite surprised that they've done so well - we had a terribly hot, early spring, but thankfully it's cooled down some.
In a square foot garden plant 1 cabbage for every 1 foot square
But broccoli we leave to flower because the bees love it!
Broccoli is planted 1 plant per each 1 foot square
Here's some flowering broccoli - it's pretty, isn't it?
Onions - 16 plants per each 1 foot square
EGGPLANT - Pitiful. Something is eating it and I haven't found the culprit yet.
Eggplant - 1 per every 1 foot square
Here's a cool tomato trick if you have trouble with birds getting your fruit just before it's ready: While the tomatoes are still green, hang red Christmas bulbs on your plants and cages. The birds will become frustrated and leave the real fruit alone. (or so I've read - sounds clever though doesn't it?!)
Square Foot Garden planting:
4 tomato plants in 4 x 4 foot garden box (I squeeze a 5th in the middle)
Snow peas - 8 plants per 1 foot square
I also have some pepper plants and corn - mutilated by chickens. Yesterday I worked to secure the garden house and thought I had accomplished my goal until I found this...
and then this...
