Here is what my planter boxes have looked like since we got a huge truck full of soil that we had to shovel into the boxes.
At least I have some other stuff growing in the garden all year.
We just planted this a few months ago. I actually planted 3, but this is the only one that really took off. The other two are small.
Lots of onions and some garlic.
I got to the arboretum by about 10:30 and it was already a good 85 degrees. That's ok, I just wanted all my organic veggie plants. Once we got in I went straight to the organic booth.
All in all, I ended up with 48 plants for about $56. I know it doesn't look like 51 plants, but some of those like the pole beans have 4 or 5 in one container. They are pretty easy to split.
Here is my first planter box, remember the peppers? Well, I got one more and added some basil and garlic to the box. The garlic didn't transplant well so it doesn't look so pretty. I also added one more pepper. A yellow one.
You can click on that picture to see the 5 bush beans in one little container. :-) That is so exciting.
In this box, I have 12 corn, 8 pole beans and 4 cucumbers.
Here I have, 1 crimson watermelon, 5 bush beans, 1 muskmelon, 1 zuccini, 2 butternut squash, 1 squash with a hard green outer shell and the rest I don't know because Mr. C planted them and didn't keep the tags. So, it will be a surprise. But there are 16 plants in all. So fun! I will have to show pictures in a month so you can see the growth. I just learned that the butternut and other squashes with the hard outer skin will keep all winter long. I hope I get a ton.
Here are 5 tomatoes, 3 celery (transplanted), 2 peanut plants and 1 egg plant. I am totally excited about the peanut plants. They will be very fun!
Last, I have these 2 cucumbers that Mr. C is trying. It's a new self watering space saver thing. So far, so good.
Can't wait to see it grow and eat it up!
