So my kids pick up when I care about things and make it their duty to look after it..... here's what I mean


Already picked all the radishes and have been eating spinach, tomatoes, and cucumbers for a couple weeks now. The cucumbers are producing around 2 a day now and it looks like that's soon to rise with it spreading out the way it is. Hope everyone's doing great talk atcha laters

Looking Good!

Dfizzle, everything looks lush, green and beautiful. Did you use the square foot gardening soil right out of Mel's Mix bag or did you mix your own? With temps the way they are here, are you watering everyday now?

I'm having some slow growth and I can't figure out why. I planted my cucumber seeds mid April and I still do not have flowering. My squash has discolored leaves. These are my full proof vegie plants and they are slow.

Any advice. Keep us posted with pics.

Thanks! I just had a soil mix delivered from a local landscape store and mixed in some of my mulch. Can't lie I've added some nutrients to the mix a couple times to increase veg production too but only a couple times. Yes I have it set to water for an hour every morning at 530am. It's been watered every single day since late march and twice a day when it was 105 and dry. So far it only seems my soybeans are experiencing any problems.
As far as your cucumbers are concerned.... and I'm still new at this.... but I got my in the ground a few weeks before yours and they have JUST started producing in the last week or so. Expect another week or 2 to start getting flowers then just a matter of days after that till your making cucumber water! Good luck!

Thanks for the info Dfizzle. Besides being new to SQG, I'm also new to Mesa and the only nursery I know of is A & P nursery. What landscape store did you use? And it sounds like you are watering a lot. What watering system are you using? sprinklers or directly to the roots?

I have increased my watering a bit and I am seeing more growth. My cucumber plants are growing more and ready to climb up my trellis.

Thanks for your input and happy gardening!

Love the picture! Unfortunately my kids just like to eat my garden or dig a nice cool spot to lay in. They are not allowed in that area anymore!
