Our Arizona raised garden bed update: Day 10

These are our Arizona raised garden beds. It has been about 10 days since we planted our seeds and look at what's growing now! I have sprayed them one time with the organic fertilizer spray I mix up. To make this organic fertilizer spray yourself is simple.

Mix into a 1 gallon pump sprayer, then fill with water:

1/3 cup of liquid seaweed
1/3 cup fish emulsion
A splash of vinegar

Use this to spray on the tops and bottoms of your leaves as well as onto the ground soil below as a safe and organic fertilizer. I use this about twice a month, may be more in the summer months. It helps to protect from insects, root rot, heat stress as well as having many more great qualities.

Here is our corn growing very tall, very fast!

All the of the garlic bulbs we planted have sprouted and are growing very tall.

Almost every seed we planted has started to grow.

This is our smaller vegetable garden, 10'x10'x4', and has many vegetables growing.

Our old wine barrel filled with wild flowers is doing great as well.
You can see the wild flower seeds sprouting up through the dirt in the center!
