Finally, I have pics!

Finally, I have pics!

Post  sherryeo on 4/24/2011, 5:45 pm

Finally, I have some pics uploaded to my computer! My first 2 ever sfg boxes, at two different stages of growth.



Trellis row (north) - Better Boy Tomato, Boston Pickling Cucumber (a mistake, I wanted salad cukes), Better Boy Tomato, Black Beauty Zucchini (this is the one I named Audrey II (after the man-eating plant in Little Shop of Horrors). I fear he plans to take over!
Next row - Big Early Bell Pepper, Poblano Pepper, Cayenne, and blank space due to zucchini space hog.
Next row - Cilantro, Contender Bush Beans, Black Beauty Eggplant, Contender Bush Beans
Bottom row - Sparkler Radishes (not sure you can see them here), Southern Peas (aka field peas, cowpeas - not sprouted yet), Mysery square - forgot what I planted here, I think it's Garlic Chives, Carrots (haven't sprouted yet, probably too late planting them)



Trellis row (north) - Evening Dew melons (don't think they'd sprouted yet here), Marion Tomato, Better Boy Tomato, Marion Tomato
Next Row - Big Early Bell, Cayenne Pepper, Poblano Pepper, blank space due to zucchini space hog
Next Row - Parsley, Black Beauty Eggplant, Dill seeded, not sprouted, Zucchini
Bottom Row - Southern Peas not yet sprouting, Contender Bush Beans, Neon Lights Swiss Chard (not sprouted yet), Contender Bush Beans

Now here are the same boxes a bit later. The plants are already bigger than this now - it seems every time I look at them, they've grown! Somehow the second box got turned sideways - but the trellis is north!





Not as grand as some I've seen posted that I deeply envy, but not too bad for a first timer, I think! The second pics make the plants look a bit yellow, but I think that's just a difference in my sons' cell phone cameras or maybe time of day. I think I'll have to replace the Cayenne Peppers - I learned here in the forum, after the damage was done, that I placed them too far from the light and they got spindly. I need to harvest some of the parsley leaves, they're getting big, but are so pretty I hate to cut them. I'm having such fun with this and am so addicted to sfgardening!!!
