so far ,this box has red and white onions, strawberries, radishes, beets, spinach, cantaloupe, crookneck squash, beans and cucumbers, marigolds and chamomile. I'll be adding tomatoes as soon as they're big enough to transplant




this box contains watermelon and pumpkin along the back, bush beans, peas, cucumber, strawberry, green onion, swiss chard, romaine/dill, romanesco zucchini and i'll be adding more pumpkin, kidney beans, and more peas soon.


here are my new potato bins, $9 each at lowes, i planted red and white seed potatoes

Post  jsavolt on 4/6/2010, 5:50 pm

Your fence is beautiful! Someday I would love one like this. Did you put chicken wire around the inside to keep the bunnies out?

I love your fence! It looks so clean and neat. I bet it'll look different when all your plants are at full height

LOL It better! I just planted half of my annual potatoes in TT sfg for the first time-30 squares.

If you google 'garbage can potatoes' you'll better understand the pic. It's just another way of maximizing square foot usage.

Wish I had good pics to share. Grass is still THINKING about turning green here, and I half expect it to snow again.
