We have lots of successful tomato plants at this point so we moved a few that were clumped together from box #4 to #2. We also created a bamboo tee pee for them to grow on.
The lima beans (clump of green in the middle with pointed leaves) are taking off so we put up two steaks with string so we can tie them up as they get bigger.
We added the same support system here for the Blue Lake green beans.
Last year we bought three of these green growing spirals to use in the Flynwood garden. We never got to plant a Spring/Summer garden last year so we held on to them until now. We took three more tomato plants from box #4 and transplanted them into box #1 and set up the growing spirals. We now have three different types of vertical growing assistants for tomatoes: growing spirals, tee pees, and a tomato cage. We'll evaluate at the end of the season to see which one(s) worked best.
A bit of water for the transplants...
and we officially have four boxes in use.
An overview of all four boxes.
The potato patch is growing like crazy! We are excited to see what is happening under ground with these things.
Here is one of over two DOZEN pumpkin plants that Rebecca and I planted last week. In one week's time, they have broken ground. Our front yard is going to be one big pumpkin patch.
