It's been just over 3 weeks since I blogged about my little vegetable plot at the community garden near home and things have really changed since then...
We've had a good amount of rain so I haven't had to water the garden very much and it's really taken off! I decided to try the Square Foot Gardening method and this tiny raised bed, which is only 3 x 8 feet, is overflowing with vegetable goodness. Apart from a nice section of carrots I've also got...
Lettuce...which we've been enjoying for weeks now
Beans...which should be ready very soon
And beets...which I'll be pulling and pickling this week.
Matthew also has a plot (actually he was asked to forfeit one of his two plots to me when I requested one and they'd run out due to overwhelming demand) and he's growing carrots, beans, onions and cucumbers. Between the two of us we'll be eating lots of fresh-picked vegetables for the next while. If only it was possible to garden year round! It's such a good feeling to eat food that you've grown yourself and know that it's healthy and hasn't been treated with chemicals. I am enjoying having this garden so much and plan on doing this every year from now on. What's growing in your garden?
Until next time...
