The tomatoes are just starting to ripen, the swiss chard and okra are tough to keep up with, and the beans remain steady. The square foot garden project is officially successful. We’ve been enjoying all of the veggies and herbs that we’ve been able to grow in the limited sun-lit parts of our property.

The carrots did their best to grow tall in their six inches of soil, curving sideways once they hit the bottom. We are still looking forward to our first taste of leeks, red onions, bell peppers, and cucumbers that have yet to produce.

But perhaps the best part of all has been the near unlimited quantities of basil that are growing. Nothing makes a recipe taste fresh like some good home-grown herbs. Mel’s method of gardening is just as simple, fun, and rewarding as he promised it would be!
