Hey that looks fantastic!

I had my first square foot garden this year as well, but it didn't look as neat as yours!!

But it gave me plenty of fresh produce! I loved it.

My secret ingredients where worm castings and worm tea to fertilize the soil which is usually very poor in our area!

looks great! Your plants look healthy & happy. :)

I put more chard per square foot I think - looks like you have one. That one will fill out the space, but you can fit four in according to most of the charts. We harvested a bunch of outer leaves last night for dinner. Yum!

Are your tomatoes determinate? If they aren't, perhaps you can rig up a trellis on the back of the bed next year. That would give a little more air space for your eggplants. There are directions for using rebar & pipe on the internet.

However, looks like you will have a great garden. You'll figure out what you want to tweak as you go. Congratulations!
