Truly blessed again this year.

Green beans:



White and yellow sweet Spanish onions:


Few more Onions:


Yellow and green Zukes:



A shot of my SFG:  Barrels and tubs.



Two Bell peppers in a tub:



Sweet taters:



One single mater:


Maters on a string.  I think I'm going to lose the ones in the center. They have a bad case of "Leaf curl".


Zukes on a trellis. Been eating them for awhile:

Everything looks so lush and green.  Well done.
I have a question about your onions.  I found I wasted so much space with my onions this year.  I did not plant them close enough together.  So, how wide is the onion bed and what was your spacing.  It looks just about right.

The inside to inside  of the bed is 20 inches. The onions are planted on 4 inch centers. They could have been planted a little closer I think but I was expecting them to get bigger than they did.

So, 9/sq planting. They are beautiful looking. The whole garden is beautiful.

Nah, I used to roast them but now I boil and then pickle them in the cooking water with vinegar and Stevia to taste.  YUM!  Wish I could get mine to grow like yours.  I grow them just for the greens now and have to buy roots. Sad

PS I meant beet greens in the above post.  Rolling Eyes
