I've pulled out some of the flowering collards, especially the ones cabbage loopers took over.. and planted thinned out kale seedlings, after adding my home made compost as a mulch of course.

Planted Raised Beds Available For Delivery!

With the success of my own square foot gardening raised beds, I was getting a lot of requests from readers to create raised beds for sale, so I’ve made a limited number of these beds which are made of high quality red wood and are planted with the best leafy greens to last until May.
The beds come in two sizes 1×3 ft squared and 2×4 ft squared.

    If interested, please email itallgrows@gmail.com for details.

Snaps From The Garden

Today, the weather is beautiful with bright sunshine and a cool breeze, this weather is tomatoes’ favorite, so I’m happy to see tomatoes responding well to the sunshine after a week of cloudy, dark weather.

One of the beefsteak tomatoes has several ‘superbloom’ or ‘megabloom‘ flowers. Which is basically two or more flowers in one, giving the fruit a weird, large shape.. megablooms are the conjoined twins of tomatoes. I look forward to the freaky fruit to come.
One of the megablooms seems to think its a sunflower, its streched out and standing tall the same way, I’ve never seen anything like it.

Coming Soon!

With the success my raised beds have had last year, I decided to create better, more beginner friendly raised beds to sell to all of you readers eager to start gardening but with no idea how..

What’s Growing?

The cool season is finally here, and here’s whats growing in my square foot raised bed garden..

A reader’s SFG experience

One of my very special readers Ahmed Alkandari who also blogs himself is starting his own square foot garden in his home.
He is following the Mel Barthalomew method, and has been seeing its Kuwaiti results through my experience.
This is truly the best feedback I can get; that I’ve proven to you that it does all grow in Kuwait, and inspired you enough to try it for your self.

Lets take a look at Ahmed’s work,

He created a plan for his raised beds. A plan is very important to help you stay organised and prepared.

He started his seeds indoors under fluorescent lights, weeks before the planting season.

He constructed his beds, and got his soil ingredients.
Ahmed is using his homemade compost which is very impressive, his plants will thank him.

He created Mel’s Mix which is a third of compost,perlite, and peat moss.

After mixing, he filled his beds.

He even constructed protective chicken wire covers, to protect against birds.

Next he planted out his beds with the seedlings.



Everything looks amazing, I am personally very proud of Ahmed, who is now inspiring me. Excellent, clean work. I am looking forward to seeing his happy garden grow.
