I can't believe it is September already! It is time to post pictures of what your garden is doing. Why not use "picture day" as a reason to get your garden in order! Today I racked up some fallen leaves, pulled some dead plants and transplanted my lettuce. It is a great excuse to get motivated!

September Garden Updates for Nor Cal / Coastal Regions Empty No feed for ten days

Post  garden mark on 9/11/2010, 3:47 pm

I needed to go to Or. for ten days over Labor Day week, garden was watered but no feed, squash stopped putting out new and several flowers on tomatoes and cucumber didn't poduce fruit. Also the pole beans stopped producing beans. Feeding heavy last two days green is coming back.
My peppers that did nothing for two months have gone crazy with flowers and new fruit.
Beefstakes are getting so big that they are pulling the branches down and braking my cloth ties, lost one that was sitting on a wire that cut into the tomatoe as it turned ripe, I have many tomatoes but that was the biggest one.
The 3x6 SFG plus 6 pots is producing squash, chard, beans, tomatoes (six different types), basil, cucumber, lettus, peppers (four different types), and four kinds of herbs!
Nice harvest after ten days see pix.

That is a great harvest! Sounds like things did pretty well while you were gone. Thanks for sharing.

September Garden Updates for Nor Cal / Coastal Regions Empty My first box (fall garden)

Post  Boxbuilder on 10/8/2010, 6:15 pm

I read the new SFG book after tilling and planting my first garden this year. I then built 5 boxes (200+ sf), and planted 1 with Mel's Mix. I'll be taking Mel's Mix to my daughter's school next week because they have a sorry looking neglected garden box, and I know I can help.

My fall garden box (the rest of my garden is also producing) has peas, bush beans, soy beans, carrots, tomatoes, green onions, lettuce, radishes, beets, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, okra, geraniums, and swiss chard. My other garden has cucumbers, zucchini, corn, beans, green peppers, eggplant, strawberries, basil, oregano, tomatoes, pumpkins, acorn squash, chives, beets, and artichokes. The cilantro went to seed, and the watermelon didn't do anything.

I have already learned about a pest eating my peas (cucumber beetle? - looks like a green ladybug) from this site. I also noticed there are people close to me, and I'd like to connect. I bought a bunch of vermiculite on Uline today ($33 inc. ship for 4 cf bags). I'm currently looking for nylon mesh. I built 3 trellises.

Hi everybody! I'm in Castro Valley.

I lost the cord to my camera in a move, so I can't post yet, but I enjoy others' pictures.
