Your garden is looking great!
Do you have a trellis or cage for your tomato?
It is good news that you will be staying awhile so you can have a garden.
Isn't wonderful to pass on the SFG garden to others! I have both my sons and family doing SFG gardens along with my sister-in-law. Now my niece and nephew that are visiting from Arkansas want to do a SFG garden. I love passing it forward....good luck...

Yes I got cages for my tomatoes but I turned them upside down and used tent stakes to keep it in place. They seem sturdier to me than putting them in the way that should be. I also bent the legs down so that it would not be pokey.This is the first year I am trying it this way. I'll post pictures again in a week.
I have bought the ANSFG book about 6 times now and keep having to buy a new one because I loan it to friends who never seem to return it. I have also been ask to twice now to talk about my garden/ teach gardening for my church as a class. Love passing it forward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking good
I am looking forward to seeing all of you and your friends beds in a month when they are in full swing.

What is the watering scheme? I did not see a spigot in any of the pics, do you have to haul water?

The have a spigot hook up with a hose long enough to reach everyone's garden bed. I just fill up 2 5 gallon buckets and let my kids water with red solo cups. The other ladies are just using the hose to water from.

Okay these two go side by side and have my tomatos, basil, pumpkins, peas, onions, carrots, garlic, and 3 flowers in it. I just found our first tomato today too...its so little and cute.


This one has radishes, parsnips, lettuce, kales, rainbow chard, regular chard, and two marigolds in it. My boys helped to plant these seeds so one I don't know where anything is and two the spacings are way off. I need to go back and thin them out.


Here is my herb sections with flowers: two things are parsley that my kids keep eating hence it looking like someone has been eating it/ its not growing, rosemary, and oregano complete this one.


Last but not least is our peppers (5 different types and 2 jalapenos), greens beans that something keeps eating, and more marigolds.

I post more pictures in a week or two when I remember to take the camera with me to the garden. :drunken:

So now that my hubby has finished his EMT course I get the computer back. Yea!!! Here is a picture that I took at the beginning of the month as a up date.
 

The boys are my helpers this summer/ the people who have been eating everything before I can get to it or even get a picture of it. Rolling Eyes lol!
