Ditto!!!!


Your gardens look wonderful.

I planted onion sets and lettuce yesterday. Next week I can plant carrots and radishes.


North Raleigh Guy- How many lettuce did you plant in each square? What kind? Thanks

North Raleigh Guy and faabala I am envious. I can't even check mine out cuz we've been out of state for a funeral. I have people taking care of it but it's not the same as me. When I left my snap peas were about 3 inches high. I had lettuce, spinach, and some radishes up. When I get home I will plant my tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and basil. I hope mine looks as good as yours when I get home.

I planted five per square and it is too many. Three would be better IMHO.

Thanks. I was going to try 4.

BTW, What did you use for your cages? Are the circular ones you made for cucumbers? What did you use to attach the wire to your posts?

I know, silly questions but I haven't done any cages yet this year.

We are using half circles of welded wire fence held up with wooden stakes for the tomatoes. We will make walls of the same material for climbing veggies. I'll post more pics as we continue to improve.

Faabala! I love your garden! Gorgeous. Did you start from seed? Eveything look so big.

I have had one wonderful salad but the rest of my lettuce isn't big enough to harvest. My spinach did finally sprout and is starting to look like spinach and I see tiny carrot sprouts emerging. I think if I took a picture of my garden at this point it would just look like dirt with some green dots.

But they are promising green dots! I'm always awed at how fast those tiny little seeds become big plants. It always brings me such joy.

Happiness is seeing our little seeds sprout


BTW, I read in another post that someone planted carrots for their cross sections in their grids instead of using string or wood. I'm going to try that next week..but just in front of the zucchini which is 3x3.
