See how my garden grows!

My garden is really growing - I'm such a brown thumber I really thought I'd have less success at this stage - and yes, I guess proof is in the pudding so to speak...so we'll see how much harvesting I have as time passes.

For now - though - and yes these are the simple ones - my first harvest...I'm so proud....

And this is a picture from Saturday - just after I built my potato condo...the plants are about 2 inches above the frame:

And just four days later...is this for real...do potatoes really grow this fast or is some alien about to implode from the box?:

This has been so exciting....thank you again to those who have advised thus far...

Wow! Great garden! I wish it would warm up here so mine can get growing! My radishes, onions, and peas are just starting to poke through the soil, and my lettuce and cucumbers are doing great in the house in their vermiculite cups :)

I'm jealous!

brownli - The first harvest is always special, regardless of size. I had my first the other day (6 lbs. of collard greens), and felt like strapping them to the hood of my truck - then driving thru town like the deer hunters do after a successful hunt. Ha! Looks like you'll be picking broccoli soon, too! How's the BT working for ya? Lastly, I love those trellises......(very strong trellises makes EG happy)

It looks lovely. I wish our frost date was earlier than May 8-10! And it's making me think I need to add more beds!
Won't Hubbo just LOVE that!

Looks beautiful!

Very nice to see. I hope mine does as well. This is my first year trying SFG and I can't plant until Memorial Day.

Thanks for sharing pics of your SFG!
