Spring Garden Update: Week 3

March 26, 2012

Watering our garden this week I looked at the little markers identifying the individual plants.  Turns out I did not plant Early Girls in the raised bed.  The correct break down of plants in the garden is as follows: A zucchini and a yellow squash in front.  Behind the squashes we planted (from left to right) a Black Prince, a Big Boy and two Celebrity tomato plants.  Behind those are (from left to right) a Brandywine and three Big Boy tomato plants.  The Brandywine and two of the Big Boys have flowered.

The big event in the garden this week was the first application of fertilizer.  I did not fertilize at all last year and still picked a good amount of vegetables.  This year I decided to try some organic fertilizer and picked up a bag of Garden-Tone 3-4-4 at Native Nurseries in Tallahassee.  I sprinkled a 1/3 of a cup around each plant and worked it into the soil before watering.
