Square Foot Gardening
Mik's Minis, err, veggies
I post a lot of stuff on here, it can't be said I don't have any variety, so how about some gardening? That's right, gardening! Okay, so it's not forty acres worth of crops, but it's at least something. I've kind of wanted to do something along these lines for a couple of summers, I just never got around to it, so here we go.
Before and after
It's not true "square foot gardening", per se, but they're at least raised beds, which is all the rage. If it's a semi-successful summer, I may try something a little more ambitious next time around. I planted stuff I like and stuff I would actually use.
More before and after
Best Boy Tomatoes
Jalapeño and Habanero peppers
Basil, this should fill up the entire area shown
Cayenne and New Mexico Big Jim peppers
My biggest concern for the longevity of my garden is not lack of water (or too much of it), not too much sun or not enough fertilizer or whatever; it's my stupid dog. I love her, most of the time, but she can be quite a handful. She's a rescue dog we took on at the age of ten months, so technically she's still a puppy, even though she's a little over a year now. She's great, but incredibly hyper, she just needs to mellow out some.
