This is my second year keeping a Square Foot Garden. The kids and I enjoyed growing and eating things right out of the garden last year, and we’re looking forward to this year’s harvest too.
Right now I only have 2 boxes. I am always surprised at how much I can plant within that small space though.
We are growing some herbs again: Oregano, Parsley, Basil, Lavender, Rosemary and Garlic chives.
We planted lots of tomatoes: Roma, Brandywine, Sunsugar, Grape tomatoes, Big beefy (or something like that) and some sweet sauce-type tomato. I’m hoping to can some spaghetti sauce this year.
We also have green peppers, bush beans, cucumbers, butternut squash, pumpkin, raspberry starts, and zuchinni. (I also have a plot of dirt where I’m growing some of the vine plants and the raspberry bushes. It’s not as fun to garden there because the weeds are so bad!)
So that’s the state of garden so far! 🙂 Mama Jen shared a cute activity where she had her kids plan their own garden. I’m planning on having my kids do something similar. Actually, I’ll have the older ones make a master chart so we know exactly what is in each square. You can check it out here: The Kid’s Garden Plans.
