How Does My Garden Grow?

This weekend friends with a truck helped me haul dirt and fill all my Smart Pots, so the garden is beginning to take real shape!

I have a few seedlings which may or may not survive transplanting (cucumbers and tomatoes), planted summer squash and delicata squash this weekend, and hope to get tomato plants, pepper plants, and onion starts in the next week. Sugar snap peas are already growing in the fake ceramic pot to the left in the top photo.

I've labeled the pots with index cards for now, with the descriptions written in bright blue, fade-proof Uni-ball Vision ink. Time will tell how the paper holds up to repeated watering and drying out. Hopefully it lasts long enough that the plants have grown enough I don't need ID--that's really all I ask.

And now...we wait!

Very nice and neat arrangement. I do hope you have an over abundance of produce.

I can't wait to see how it all does. We could have a type-and-produce-in, in late Summer. Betsy's got a lot going on as well, in our postage-stamp yard.

That'd be fun! Hopefully by then I'll have tomatoes and peppers and lots of lemon herbs.
