My wonderful hubby spent two days building me 16 raised garden beds.
We have planted our vegetables and cut flowers in them. If you missed my garden plan you can see it Here.
I am thankful to have all this rich black dirt stock piled on our property. It came from digging our pond.
I am so glad hubby has a bobcat to move all the dirt, it would be to much to do by hand.
For some reason raised beds don’t seem as overwhelming as planting directly into the ground. I go out every morning and pull what ever weeds pop up over night. I also like the fact that I can sit on the edge of the planter to do my work.
I put the tomato trellises into the ground and planted the peas along side them. I figured the peas could grow up the tomato stakes and be harvested long before the tomatoes would actually need them.
I love these tomato cages. They are so easy to assemble and can be made into different variations. They also store easy for next years use.
See how they just snap together?
You can find them at your local Lowes Store.
They’re called “Blue Ribbon Tomato Cage”
The peas seem to be doing there job. Setting off little runners and starting to climb the cages, before long they will be producing heavily.
I have never done potatoes before, we don’t eat many around our house, but decided to give them a try. Wow do they germinate fast, can’t wait to dig them up.
The green beans are also doing fantastic.
All the melons, cukes, and squash are at this stage.
The only thing left to plant is tomatoes and they still haven’t arrived in the mail.
Stop back by and see the garden grow:)
