My Square Foot Garden Pictorial

Burpless Cucumbers

If you put your pointer on each picture, you can see what it represents.

The biggest cuke is about five inches long already. I can almost see it grow. I bought the cage you can see in the background at the Farmers’ Co-Op for $5. A little steep for a tad of wire but it was needed.

My neighbor pointed this out and I told him I’d picked my first ripe one last Sunday. I said I tried to rouse him so I could share but couldn’t so I ate it all myself. You snooze you lose.

Ripening Tomato

He did get some stakes fixed up for me. I battled the plants yesterday and got 10 of them tied up. He cut some more for me today. I’m afraid they are too short but they’ll have to do for now. I’ll work on them tomorrow afternoon.

Strange Blossom Tomato and Friend

Caged Volunteer Tomatoes

There are a few tomato plants I’m going to give away and this is one of them.

A Giveaway Tomato Plant

I sprinkled seed Sunday.

Arugula Babies

Question: If I cut the romaine down and leave the roots will it come up milder?

Lettuces

Woohoo! It’s about the size of a ping pong ball!

Watermelon!

My neighbor wanted me to take this picture. The thermometer is probably the one my in-laws had hanging by the back door. If you click on it, you’ll be able to see that it’s registering 118 degrees F in the sun. The air temp was about 80 but the sun is what the plants feel. I watered the droopiest looking ones.

In the Sun

There’s no measurable rain in the forecast for the foreseeable future. A 30% chance of thunder showers isn’t much but maybe it will pan out. I hope so.

    Wow! Cucumbers already. I have some blooms. Do have one green pepper ready,green beans, lots of blooms on the zucchini, green tomatoes, etc. One way I’m ahead of you and that’s in my amazing crop of WEEDS! Get rid of some almost daily, but I’m outnumbered. Wish I knew somebody who could use tomato plants–I have dozens and dozens of volunteers.

    Happy gardening!

    Awesome garden, especially the cucumber. I’ve been getting some good cukes from the farmer’s market, but it’s not the same as growing your own. *sigh*

    Really beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I gave up this year and will leave it to the pros at the CSA I’ve joined and the farmers market. But it really is super when you grow your own. Enjoy!
