Garden Update, August 2008

I was totally unaware that I did not post a July 2008 garden update. I'm a bit late with the August one too. Well, no one's paying me for this anyways.

Overview:

The perennial bed. Not quite as colorful as a couple of months ago, but a few of the herbs seem to have established themselves. Most notably the oregano (the bright green clump just to the right of the center) and the stevia (to the right of the oregano). You will also notice a watermelon plant on the bottom left!

Harmony direct-sowed some watermelon seeds back in May, I think. We were ready to completely give up on having watermelons this year, but it's looking like we'll have at least one. These are the Sugar Baby variety. The bigger one is about 6 inches in diameter.

Tomatoes, peppers, and basil.

We are going to move to more orthodox Square Foot Gardening techniques. Here we have started some cooler weather vegetables such as radishes, carrots, turnips, leeks, broccoli, and cabbage.

    Wow! That really is looking great.

    I have not seen your square foot garden yet so this was a treat. I think you will be quite surprised at how well that one turns out, even as a fall garden.
