Here's the first batch of pictures I took of the garden last week. I'm going small and steady this year and hopefully will be able to branch off more next year as I learn how to use what I plant. Last year the little girls (and even Jason if I remember correctly) did like eating the peas fresh off the vines so that's a start.
In this square (I don't do a perfect square-foot garden by the book but was just trying to see how it works) I have 16 corn plants in a 4x4 area. Around each edge of the 16 small squares is lettuce and radishes. I dug a radish the other day and boy, was it peppery! They were called "Sparkler" radishes; I'll try a different variety if I plant them again next year. It was fun to plant those though; they came up quickly.
This 4x4 square has peas and beans. I improvised a climbing area for the peas, much to Aaron's chagrin because I used something he thought was good yet. Hopefully it won't weather too much and he'll still be able to use it. There are 8 pea plants in each of the 8 squares and 9 beans in each of the 8 squares. The idea with the beans is so you don't have to do any weeding because the leaves cover the ground once they bush out.
This 4x4 section has 8 pepper plants, 3 tomato plants (the 4th bit the dust--or the dust bit it! so I put 9 more beans there,) 16 onions, and three more corn plants with about 30 carrot seeds around them that my aunt sent up. I looked at all the stores up here and couldn't find any carrots!!!
Even though I built the ground up, the soil is still saturated. :) I'll try to post more pictures as they become available. The fence is doing a wonderful job of keeping things out.
