First season...still evolving

Post  raferg71 on 6/15/2011, 6:57 pm

This is my first season of SFG-ing.



I have a "traditional" 4'X4'X10" and a 10'X2'X10", In the 4X4 I have planted Basil, Cilantro, Rosemary, Green Onions, Mesculin Mix, Black Seed lettuce, Bell Peppers, Swiss Chard, and Cucumbers



In the larger box i started sectioning off in 2' sections for my different types of "bush style" tomato plants, I have also planted tabasco peppers, jalapino peppers, red "asian style" peppers, pickling cucumbers, mescaline mix and green onions.

Looks great! What did you use for your labels? I'm guessing pieces of lath? I like them a lot.

Way to go raferg

It takes time for the garden to grow, but looks like you are on your way. Love the 2X10 for tomatoes and peppers and others. Fits nicely along the fence.

You guessed correct! I have some left over from my grid, so I cut them about 10" and wrote on them with a sharpie..

Looks great. I am sure the tomatoes will love the heat radiating from the fence at night!
