My little square foot garden has changed quite a bit in the past few weeks! Here’s a garden update:
My bush beans are thriving where the lettuce used to be. I figured out that it was rolie polie bugs eating at their leaves – thankfully, they like partying with the slugs in my beer traps at night so the damage has decreased greatly.
Behind the bush beans are two eggplants (they have the plant supports around them) and what remains of the swiss chard. I harvested a bunch before this photo was taken and it is now blanched and sitting in the freezer for a future side dish.
Pictured above are my bell pepper plants, which have room to breathe now that the cabbages are making their exit. The two bigger peppers are a sweet yellow pepper and the jalapeno pepper plant that the kids have nicknamed “Spicy.”
Up top of this photo are the last two cabbages. I drastically cut back my oregano because he was starting to take over. The little onions in the center of the photo are finally big enough to use. Two of them graced the top of our nachos at lunch today!
That’s it for now!
