Square Foot Garden Update 2 Months

It’s been 2 months since we planted our garden and with our new drip line in, the plants have been doing wonderful!!!

I can’t believe how much of a difference this has made.  We have stuff popping up from seeds I planted from last season that never came up.  Prior to putting the drip line in, I had been watering my garden with the hose.  I thought the plants were getting enough water, however now seeing the difference, I really don’t think the water penetrated into the soil.

Here’s a look at my artichoke plant.

Here’s a look at my tomato plants and if you look closely to the left, you can see some of the pepper plants I have.

We purchased several types of tomato plants, better boy, champion, a few heirloom plants one being brandywine.

These brandywine tomatoes I purchased, don’t look like they’ve grown at all and were actually discouraging until I read how slow growing they are.  They take 90 days to hit maturity, which will put us at the end of June.   I doubt we’ll get a good crop on this, when the temperatures hits over 100 degrees.

We purchased these plants in 1″ pots, now take a look at the other tomato plants

See the difference?  The brandywine tomatoes looks a lot smaller, now you can see why I got discouraged.  I can’t wait to see if they produce anything, I’ll keep you updated on that.

While we tying up some of the branches we actually broke one of the stems off.  Instead of throwing it away, did you know that you can root your tomatoes and replant them?  Here’s a look the one I’m rooting and will be planting in a few days.

Lastly, we pulled a few carrots from our winter garden and this one by far was just about perfect!  My husband planted the carrots… see how excited he is!

Overall I’m really excited about my garden.  How is your garden doing?
