I love going out in the morning over the weekend and just picking weeds, smelling the tomato plants, and making sure my babies are healthy and strong. I can't wait for our first harvest! We have 46 potato plants growing so I see a lot of potato dishes in our future. Yum!
The vegetables we are growing include: Carrots, Beets, Parsnips, Swiss Chard, Tomatoes, Herbs (Parsley, Lettuce, Dill, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, Chives), Red Potatoes, White (baking) potatoes, Cauliflower, Spanish Onions, Red Onions, Spring Onions, Red Cabbage, Zucchini, Butternut Squash, Spaghetti Squash, Sugar Snap Peas, Yellow Wax Beans, Green Beans, Scarlett Runner beans.
How did you create it? We rototilled a 20' x 15' patch in our yard and only used about 3/4 of it. My father in law built us 6'x6' boxes with a divider down the center. These I filled half way with soil and began planting by the square foot.
Everything has approximately 1 square foot of room, except for the root vegetables like carrots, beets, and parsnips. Those have less room as I was able to fit 3 rows per foot. It's a tight garden space, but things are filling in and shading out the weeds!
