The new gardens look incredible. Just what I pictured a year ago. Part one.
Raised vegetable gardens may not be everyone's idea of a beautiful garden, but it is mine. I was looking across the yard this evening, and it took my breath away. It just looks so...perfect. Even though there are pots strewn about, wheelbarrow full of mulch and seed planting supplies everywhere. After we moved about two yard of soil into the three new raised beds, I got the sunflowers, nasturtiums, sugar peas, dill, beets and carrots planted. I put about half of Aunt Helen's wild strawberries under the blueberries. I am going to keep at least one in a pot, until I know they've taken.
Hugelkultur bed...Sidney style
I redid the little dirt dams around the fruit trees. And I extended the lasagna bed about four feet. It was about eight very long straight hours of work in the hot sun.
I have a sun burn on my arm. I rarely burn. Sweet!!!
