That is funny. I just pulled a bunch of french breakfast, threw the tops to the nuggets and brought the rest in to have with bread and spaghetti. Yours are very pretty.

Here's a shot of the SFG from my deck...

Post  rjbokleman on 5/17/2011, 8:54 pm

...looking out over the Rosemary and Dill. Built these 6 - 4'x4'x6" SFG boxes last year in March of 2010 for the first time. Had a great harvest and in September of 2010 increased the depth of the 4 on the left to 12" for this year. Left the other two alone not wanting to disturb the onions, garlic and stawberry's I left for over-wintering. Now, the stawberries are blooming and the onions and garlic are doing great!

I love Mel's method and for Mother's day this year, I built my mother two boxes at her home and she's thrilled and doing great.



I also added some drip irrigation to the left row of three and will post some photo's of that project soon. I wanted to reduce my hand watering workload using 5 gallon buckets of sun warmed water...lots of work when you've got this many squares filled to the brim!

They're beautiful! Don't you just love the way they push their shoulders out of the soil for you?
