Lot of progress...with pics

Post  PeonyLover on 5/7/2012, 3:00 pm

Ended up filling 3 4x4's, 1 1x8, 1 1x1 and 2 potato bags so far. Whew! After a rough start (broken wrist) and both my husband and son having surgeries over spring break i'm surprised at how much progress i have made. We are all well now and so is the garden. Here are my boxes on 4/10 (only 2 planted plus potato box)
Box 2:


Box 3:


Potatoes: Adirondack Blue in box, Potomac red & Yukon in bags



Here is what they look like this morning: Laughing
Box 1:

Box 2:

Box 3:


And what a difference a week makes with tomatoes cyclops
Tomatoes 5-1:

Tomatoes 5-7:


And what i'm was super duper excited about!!!!!
My early Mother's day gift:

Mexicola Avocado & Improved Meyer Lemon rock on
Also my herbs are coming along nicely I have German Chamomile, Hibiscus, Rosemary, Thyme, Basil(sweet, Thai, Lemon), Stevia, and Parsley.
This is my first year SFG-ing and so far, so good.

Thanks Elysia. This is my first year, so any success is good success. Now, the kids are involved and it's been a great learning tool.

Thanks Rooster. I will check out the link. I've been photo documenting for my own garden journal and to create a lesson plan (i'm a teacher).

It's fun to share and compare, plus you can look back at the progress you made over the week. Lol, I make the forum my public journal Very Happy I don't think I'm dedicated enough to keep one on my own!
