Last week we harvested 1 pound 2 ounces of vegetables from our first ever square foot garden.
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.
Sugar snap peas. yep, looking good.
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. 😉
