Square Foot Gardening – Broccoli, Kale, Peas, Carrots and Onions

square foot gardening

Last week we harvested 1 pound 2 ounces of vegetables from our first ever square foot garden.

organic broccoli

I snapped a few pictures this morning to show you what’s growing right now in our 4×8 foot bed. Broccoli! Wahooo! I was unsuccessful growing it in our other raised garden beds this spring, but for some reason the broccoli is thriving in the square foot garden. Weird huh?

I think I’ll try growing broccoli again in the fall but for right now I’m pretty happy we’ll at least get one head of broccoli and a couple of florets this spring.

Check out the Walla Walla onions! 3 of the 4 onions are growing great. Yes, it’s true, we do have a dud in the bunch, or maybe I should say it’s a late bloomer. I’m not sure yet.

Carrots, check.

sugar snap peas

Sugar snap peas. yep, looking good.

snow peas

Snow peas. Do you see the makings for a stir fry dinner tomorrow? I do.

Okay, look at the size of this kohlrabi. I think it may have doubled in size over the past week. This uber cool vegetable is about the size of a baseball right now.

And kale. Ain’t she pretty. I guess this means I’ll be drinking a kale smoothie for breakfast tomorrow. Yipee. I’m so excited. 😉

    can you tell me what the difference is between sugar snap peas and snow peas? or are they basically the same. I once heard that snow peas are just young sugar snap peas.

    Do you freeze your pineapples? I cut up a pineapple last Friday and froze some for smoothies. If you do freeze them, would you mind sharing your tips and what you use them in? I am thinking that the texture will change some after being frozen.

    It is time to eat that kohlrabi! If it gets too big it gets tough and woody. I usually eat them at this size or a little smaller. Love them! Kim
