Thought I would give a little update on the garden. This is my first year for a square foot garden. As you can see the boxes are spaced every foot with twine to maximize planting space and better utilize fertilization and watering needs. I've read that (1) 4x4 box could feed 1 person for a year. Last night we put up trellises for the vining plants, cucumbers, melon, squash. The idea is that the vines will run up and over the trellis and do their vining in the grass. Stakes were added for the tomatoes, and we have little tepees for the sugar peas. We've started putting up a temporary fence around the garden area. Hopefully the deer won't find the delicacies. I picked a little basil last night and it looks like we'll have some radishes to pull any day now. It's a beautiful thing this garden.
