The Square Foot Garden Grows
By The Growing Gardener
Here is an update on how my square foot garden is blossoming.
I love this leafy boragenot sure yet what I'm going to do with it, but it has huge ornamental value in the veggie garden. I read that it will help improve the flavor of tomatoes growing nearby. That's a good thing because my tomotoes could use a little help.
The picture could be clearer, but that's a tomato in the front of the photoyou can see a wispy yellow flower there. There's also green pepper, parsley, oregano, thyme, nasturium, and vining peas. I'm very proud of these tall pea babies, and they are already sweet and tasty. They are the only veggie I grew from seed. The purple/blue flower is Scabiosa caucasica 'Butterfly Blue.'
These chives are blooming at their peak. I will cut a few of the heads off and make an omelette with chives later this week. I think I like chives better blooming in the garden than cooking in the eggs!
Here's picture of the entire square foot garden. It also has kale (quite a lot of it), leeks, eggplant, basil, spinach, and cilantro (the 3-foot tall herb in the right corner). Behind that (outside the square foot garden) is fennel that is quite large. I'm not sure what I want to do with it. I read about roasting the bulb with basalmic vinegar, but I like just smelling it when I'm out watering and checking on the garden progress.
