It's All Growing....
Wow, I am so pleased with my little gardens. I have never grown cantaloupe before and they are so pretty...just like in the grocery store! My little watermelons are coming along nicely as well. I have some silver queen corn growing although not as much as I would like. The square foot gardens ( 4 X 4 raised beds) are so easy to maintain with no weeding. Next year I hope to have a much bigger one for corn and a few more, and fence in the area as the deer have been visiting. I do not mind sharing but they pick tomatoes and leave them there and they are starting to nibble on my green bean foliage.
As always I have a helper when I am checking out the gardens. Sam just loves to get into everything. Oh, if you are wondering why the bricks around the corn, it is to hold them up, we get a lot of strong winds and it knocks them right over.
