Garden Project Update – May 2009

What a beautiful spring day! We are finally getting some consistently warm and sunny days which means ideal growing conditions for our organic garden. Added this month is a second Square Foot Garden. Marcel thought he could outdo my SFG with a bigger and better set-up. His SFG frame is 8″ high compared to my 6″ frame and a sunnier location. While tomatoes are my favorite, Marcel likes peppers – with 12 varities and growing. In my SFG, the top performers this month are romaine lettuce, spinach, sugar snap peas, and watermelon. Basil and tomato plants are doing well in Marcel’s.  Although they are growing fast, the only harvest available right now are herbs and spinach. Soon, some romaine  lettuce will be ready, as well as some broccoli.

In case you are wondering, here is a complete list of our plants:
