Ari, Ari, Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

With Romano beans and cucumbers and raspberries all in a row.


Also, lovely dill, red leaf and green leaf lettuce, chives, an adorable baby watermelon (growing fast), peas, cilantro, radishes, strawberries, and a massive Roma tomato plant.





















This has been the most successful Square Foot Garden I've done so far. I'm actually eating the things I grow! My strawberries have sent out runners to every empty spot on the garden, so next year I should have twice the strawberries. My cucumbers are crisp and sweet. My tomato plant has taken over one whole quarter of the garden and is giving me great tomatos for salsa. It's awesome!

JJ- they're called purple raspberries. Evidently you can't grow black raspberries within 30 feet of other raspberries, so I got red and purple instead.

How do you keep the bugs off your berries? They eat up my raspberries before we can get to them.

Oh and good luck in your competition this weekend. :)
