The garden is up and running again this year! This is particularly poignant for me, since last year I was recovering from a c-section during primo planting season. The rundown of what you see (and don’t see) here:
- Sugar snap peas (2 squares)
- 1 Roma tomato plant
- 4 strawberry plants
- Yukon Gold potatoes (2 squares)
- Skinny Green Beans (Haricot Vert) – 1 square planted, but 4 squares lined of for succession planting
- 1 Zucchini mound, which for some reason hasn’t sprouted yet
- Raspberries in the left pot
- Carrots in the right pot
I’ve also got an old established herb garden up near the house, which I’ll post pictures of in a later post.
And no, I don’t have a cost basis for my garden, like so many other frugal bloggers. Why? Well, I’m just not that organized. What I can tell you is that my Square Foot Garden setup was super thrifty (the grid is made of extra slats from wooden blinds), and for most of the plants, I went the frugal (read: seed) route. Also, all my seeds are organic and mostly open-pollinated, so I’ll be saving seeds for next year.
