Planting Green Things

I am planting “Green things” in my square foot gardens. The plants look good and have healthy root systems.В  I started the plants from seed in March. Swiss Chard, Red Kale, and Collard greens went in today. Five varieties of lettuce were planted yesterday.В  All this green stuff makes for wonderful salads. The steamed greens with garlic and a little olive oil are wonderful.В  One of the square foot gardens will be planted with greens. Another one of the square foot gardens will be planted with a variety of herbs. I take my basket and scissors out with me and it is instant salad. As the growing season progresses, I will add tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.

There are diagrams and directions for the square foot gardens on our web site.В  I love my main garden, but the square foot gardens behind the house are just fun!!
