First year SFG update

Post  Hoggar on 7/13/2011, 3:41 pm

You all have been such great help getting this thing going so I thought Id post an update.
My peas got about 2' tall and stopped the two cups of peas we got off of them were delish.
They never looked real healthy they were kind of pail and the third of the vines turned yellow
early on. Every thing else seems to be doing great and were on our 10th lettuce harvest we
just keep pulling the leaves from the bottom and it grows new ones. the tomatoes recovered
from the sun scorch and are going great guns, I have been trellising them and its no as much
work as I thought it would be. We harvested our first Broccoli yesterday and have two more
heads to take some time this week, a friend whose whole yard is a combination of SFG and
plain raised bed garden told me if i snip out all but the bottom 3 or 4 sprouts and don't cut
out the leaves the lower sprouts will grow new heads out to the side. (we will see how that goes...)

So here are some pictures of my SFGs. The pics are large so they may take a second to load.
