My first SFG as of 06/07/11

Post  Hoggar on 6/8/2011, 12:38 pm

These pictures were taken just before we harvested our third batch of Leaf Lettuce and
our second batch of spinach. My first group of cucumbers were eaten by snails so my
new sprouts are just coming up as well as my watermelon, I have applied a ring of Slugo
around my boxes and have had no more issues with snails "Knock wood", my Pumpkins
are going great guns and will get there trellis soon it will be a corner wedge type affair
off the side of the watermelon/cucumber trellis, which can be swiveled forward and back
for more angle and to access the fruit as it hangs down through the trellis.
Oh You can also see my happy Peas growing up there Square Foot Trellis It has survived
30mph winds.

My tomatoes got severe sun scorch when I first put them out to harden them off. The day
I chose to put them out was the first day the clouds decided to not hang around and it got
up to 70° I came home from work to white leaves and wilting plants, but they seam to be
recovering and will be attached to there strings tonight.

Hoggar, those various trellises look great. Don't forget to let us know which works best for you. (At the end of the season)

I'll be glad to, So far the Pea trellis is doing exactly what i wanted it to the vines are climbing the strings and
moving to the outside of the frame like I planned, there about a foot and a half tall now. I got the strings on to
my tomatoes yesterday and they seam to be doing better having recovered from there sun scorch. I'll post
more pictures in a week when I get back home. Ive got the sprinkler grids hooked up to a timer so I don't have
to worry about the wife and kids no watering while I'm gone.
